Who is the school-supporting association used for?
The School-supporting association is a kind financial system that supports educational needs of students. The school-supporting association of CWNU is more than 1.3 million won per a student in a semester. It has to be used just for students and education. However, the school-supporting association of CWNU is used for other things such as the salary of Chair Professors regardless of students think. A Chair Professor is an appointed professor who has an academic legacy and the salary of those Chair Professors comes from a named fund and outside institutions. So, CWNU doesn’t have to give them their salary using funds from the school-supporting association. The educational environment of CWNU is really bad. There are cracks on the wall and broken desks and chairs in the classrooms. Of course it is important to invite experts as chair professor to give students better chances to learn but it is more important to prepare and develop a basic educational environment for students to study.

Uncertain rules, Unbearable results
A Chair Professor is an appointed professor who has an academic legacy. Chair Professors can receive financial support for their research and also their salary from a named fund and outside institutions. However, CWNU uses the school-supporting association to provide Chair Professors with their salaries. There are no rules regulating the giving of a salary to Chair Professors. Actually the salary system for Chair Professors is looser than the system used for non-Chair Professors. We have the right to complain that the school-supporting association is used for other things, such as, normalizing and developing educational environment because the school-supporting system uses out tuition money. The absence of rules makes the problem worse. There are some students who work a lot to gather money for their tuition so it is only fair that this money is spent on the student and their educational; environment and not the salaries of Chair Professors.
