[Incorporation] The SNU Professors' Association officially raised questions about the law and draft of the articles on SNU's incorporation, pointing out that both instruments are mainly focusing on enlarging the range of authority of the president. The Association argued that there should be a procedure which enables SNU’s faculty and staff to state their views in appointing members of the board of directors. It was also asserted that the authority of the board of directors must be restricted to financial matters, not including educational and academic research issues.
