Students of YU (President CHOI Oe-chool) started social contribution activities by gathering pocket money.


 YU started raising “With YU students’ social contribution fund” from second semester in 2022. The purse is to let students enhance the sense of belonging and school spirit and feel the importance and value of social contribution by participating in fund raising for social contribution through donation of small amount of money.


 Especially, “With YU students’ social contribution fund” was made by University Headquarter and Student Council (Chairman, KANG Tae-wook). The purpose is active participation of university members to achieve the vision of “A creative and innovative university to contribute in prosperity of human society” put by YU this year.


 Chairman KANG Tae-wook of YU Student Council said, “The value of sharing will be expanded in the campus by the method that students participate social contribution activities with donation of small amount of money as little as a cup of coffee. I hope many students participate and the good influence started in the university campus is expanded to every place of the society.”


Any YU students may participate in “With YU students’ social contribution fund.”  Participation is possible with regular donation or one-time donation after online agreement in the website of YU Development Fund (loveyu.yu.ac.kr).


 “With YU students’ social contribution fund” will be used by YU Social Contribution Team organized this year. It will be used for global service activities as well as domestic social contribution activities including material purchase and donation, etc. for service activities linked with local voluntary service centers, etc. Also, various social contribution programs for support of education and lectures to expand social contribution in the university and for industry-academy contribution activities, etc. will be made.


 President CHOI Oe-chool of YU said his expectation, “I think that, if all members agree in the vision of the university and try together, the vision will be achieved. In this respect, the activities for “With YU students’ social contribution fund” are highly meaningful. A small sharing activity started in the campus will become a springboard for social contribution activities to contribute in development and win-win of local societies over the campus.”
