[Policy]ERICA Students Take Action to Revitalize Gyeonggi-do Local Business Districts

Hanyang University ERICA Campus, along with five other universities, is striving to revitalize local business districts in Gyeonggi-do. As a result of the Local Business District-University Cooperation Project selection council held by the Gyeonggi-do Market Commercial Promotion Agency on July 15, where participants included market development experts and professors of colleges of arts, it was announced that they will support the revitalization of local business districts with six universities in the province. The Local Business District-University Cooperation Project started last year along with the Local Business District Organization Service that the 7th local election in Gyeonggi-do is carrying out, and has the goal of developing a beautiful and unique local business district related to arts and design, in collaboration with universities. The universities selected for this project are Hanyang University ERICA Campus, Kyunghee University, Kaywon University of Art and Design, Kyungdong University, Daejin University, and Shinhan University, a total of six schools. Each university will be provided with 25 million won for business expenses to facilitate the self-perpetuating ability of local business districts. This year’s selected projects displayed unique ideas from students and were highly evaluated in terms of commercial district association, ripple effect, and feasibility. Hanyang University ERICA Campus will begin its cooperation hotline with Ansan's University Merchant Association and the ERICA Merchant Association, create a logo composite mark, and produce promotion video clips to revitalize business districts near the university as local community representative attractions. Gyeonggi-do intended funds to circulate within the local business districts by proving some of the student activity expenses in Gyeonggi local currency which is only allowed to use in Gyeonggi district. This year, the activity expenses have been doubled from last year to allow students to stay longer and work together in local business districts. Cho Jang-seok, director of the small business department said that “it is significant that local university students and merchants are coming together to identify the problems of local business districts and trying to solve them together,” and that “this project will be a stepping stone to gradually expanding the services of revitalized local business districts.” Global News Team global@hanyang.ac.kr Translation by: Park Gyeong-min

[Policy]10 Universities Including Hanyang University Developing the CDS Big Data University Coalition

Ten of Korea's universities, including Hanyang University, have created the Citizen Data Scientist (CDS) Big Data University Coalition to foster talented individuals in the field of big data. The CDS is for people that have a specific field and also possess big data processing skills. △Dankook University △Daejeon University △Dong-A △Yonsei University (Wonju) △Chonnam National University △Jeonju University △Jeju National University △Chosun University △Hanyang University and △Hoseo University have come together to form the coalition. Big data and data analysis are fields that are often considered to be abstract and difficult, with universities turning out fewer experts than are demanded by industries. The CDS Big Data University Coalition was established to solve this problem, to foster big data experts that businesses need through big data education that anyone can approach, analyze, and utilize. The CDS Big Data University Coalition will provide a big data education program to university students that will last two months starting in July, with plans to hold a competition in October. The coalition decided to extend their target subjects to employees of businesses along with elementary, middle school, and high school students. It will also carry out a big data-based platform project that fits the industrial environment of local societies, through the help of representative universities around the 4 districts of Korea. In the end, it aims to execute employment and business startup support projects for university students using newly created business models. Professor Jeon Byong-hun The first president of the CDS Big Data University Coalition, Jeon Byong-hun Hanyang University LINC+ Project Leader (Professor of the Department of Earth Resources and Environmental Engineering), mentioned that "Big data education and cultivating talented individuals cannot be carried out by a single university," and added that "the CDS Big Data University Coalition will take the leading role in the development of Korea."

[Policy]“Dormitories Open for Students Taking Offline Exams” … Student Residence Halls Open Temporary Accommodations During Final Exam Period

Hanyang University’s Student Residence Halls have opened up temporary accommodation services for students who are not currently residing in the residence halls. This is a measure to support students who have to live close to school for a certain period of time due to offline exams and is expected to be a cheap alternative that will be used by students who live far from campus. The students who live in a residence hall and students who live in the Seoul area are not eligible, and only students who are taking offline exams can apply. Also, students who gave up their assigned rooms after April 2nd or those who left their rooms after being assigned to one will be recruited again separately from May 29th to June 11th, so one should look carefully at the selection list and apply. The student residence hall will accept 75 male and female students in total. Student Residence Hall II, Hanyang Techno Residence Hall, and Student Residence Hall III, which will house male students, will pick 4, 2, and 12 students respectively. For Student Residence Hall V, which will accept 2 students, only those in the Class of '20 can apply. Students can choose to stay in the dormitories either from June 14th to June 20th or from June 14th to June 23rd, and the price that the students have to pay differs according to the time period in which they wish to stay in the dormitories and the type of dormitory they choose. The dormitories that female students can apply to stay in (Gaenari Residence Hall, Hannuri Residence Hall, and Student Residence Hall I) will accept 4, 4, and 45 students respectively. Just like the male students, Student Residence Hall V will only accept 2 students that are in the Class of '20. Unlike Gaenari Residence Hall, Hannuri Residence Hall, and Student Residence Hall V which are 2-person rooms, Student Residence Hall I is a 3-person room and is therefore comparatively cheaper than the others. The students who wish to stay at the residence halls temporarily can register through the residence halls' website from June 8th at 10 AM until June 9th at 3 PM. As the rooms will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, students must register as quickly as possible. Students who have been assigned a room will be informed separately at 3 PM on June 10th. It is important to note that there will be no refunds after the living expenses have been paid, even if the student leaves in the middle of their stay. Students are also not allowed to lengthen or alter their period of stay after the living expenses have been paid.

[Policy][COVID-19] Offline Classes Postponed for One Week... Effect of the Mass Infection

With the rapid change in the situation for COVID-19 due to the recent mass infection in the Itaewon clubs, the schedule that allowed for offline classes on all theory-based courses has been postponed for one week. This schedule can also change depending on further developments. According to the "2020 Emergency Announcement on Spring Semester Offline Class Operation," which was announced on the 12th, the offline classes that were originally planned to be held starting from May 25th are now postponed until June 1st. The offline classes were planned to be allowed for all theory-based courses, after receiving permission by going through specified procedures. This change of dates could be postponed again according to the quarantine authority, or cancelled to remain as distance learning classes for the whole semester. Whether the offline classes will be allowed after June 1st is expected to be decided on May 18th. Experiment and practice based courses, and IC-PBL lectures were already allowed to hold offline classes from April 13th, and some theory subjects such as Career Development I got permission for offline classes starting from May 18th. The classes that were already held offline will continue to be held in the format they currently are. Meanwhile, Seoul and ERICA Campuses sent emergency text messages to all students on the afternoon of the 11th, announcing that students who visited Itaewon during a certain period must be inspected. The following is the whole text of the text message sent from the Seoul Campus. 4.24~5.6 서울 이태원 소재 유흥시설(클럽, 주점 등)을 방문한 학생들은 방문일로부터 14일간 등교를 중지하고 증상유무와 관계없이 검사가 가능하니 1339나 관할 보건소로 상담바랍니다. 확진검사 결과 음성인 경우라도 확진자와 동선과 시간대가 겹치는 경우에도 14일간 등교를 중지해야 합니다. Students who visited entertainment facilities (clubs, bars, etc.) in Itaewon during 4.24-5.6 should stop attending school for 14 days from the date of their visit. Those students can be tested for COVID-19 regardless of symptoms, so please consult 1339 or the local health center. They should stop attending school for 14 days even if the test results are negative if their travel path and time of visit overlap with those of the confirmed patients. ▶ See announcements made from the Academic Service Team at http://www.hanyang.ac.kr/surl/JkPNB Global News Team global@hanyang.ac.kr Translation by: Lee Won-young

[Policy]Offline Classes Can Resume Starting from the 25th … How Will This be Done?

With about a month and a half left until the end of the first semester, how will classes resume from now on while online classes have been extended indefinitely? On the 4th, the Office of Academic Affairs announced that all offline classes would be allowed to be conducted as long as they meet all conditions required by the preventative measures starting from May 25th, which is the 11th academic week of the 2020 Spring semester. This means that if the classes comply with the preventative measures set by the university, general classes other than practical courses will be able to hold offline classes as well. According to the Office of Academic Affairs, the university plans to allow students to partake in offline classes from May 25th, in line with the governmental response, and to begin easing social distancing policies in regards to COVID-19. All courses can be conducted as distance-learning courses until the end of the semester, and offline classes can also be conducted regardless of course type if the preventative measures set by the university’s Infectious Disease Management Committee are met. Additionally, students who still wish to take courses remotely for those that have been switched to offline classes will still be provided with distance-learning opportunities. Hanyang University has already allowed offline classes to take place starting April 13th, and from May 11th, the 9th academic week, it allowed conditional offline classes to take place for courses such as Career Development 1. This current decision allows all classes to be reviewed on whether they are able to hold offline classes or not. The lecturer in charge of the class will consult with their students and decide on how the classes will be run from the 11th week and finalize their decision after reviewing it with the Department and the Infectious Disease Management Committee. The lecturer then must notify the students by May 11th on how their classes will be run, and the classes will be conducted from the 11th academic week until the final exams in accordance with the finalized teaching method. Even if offline classes are to be conducted, they must meet the preventative standards set by the Infectious Disease Management Committee. During class, a distance of more than one meter should be secured between the students and between the students and the lecturer, or a classroom that fits twice the number of the students in the class should be acquired. This means that for a class with 20 students, the lecturer must acquire a classroom that fits at least 40 students. With this in mind, most classrooms already have stickers that say "No sitting allowed," and these classrooms are assigned to each class based on the number of students and the number of seats available, excluding these prohibited seats. Additionally, all classes must satisfy preventative measures before the class starts, such as checking everyone’s body temperatures, disinfecting everyone’s hands, wearing masks, using personal pin microphones, and during the lecture, classrooms must be frequently ventilated. “The determined lecture format will be maintained until the final exams,” said the Office of Academic Affairs. “This can be changed if the situation in regards to COVID-19 worsens in the future, or if there is a change in regards to the governmental policies.” The following is an official notice from the Office of Academic Affairs. 2020 Spring Semester Course Operation Announcement from Week 11 (2020.05.25. (Monday)~) These are the guidelines for this semester’s course operation in regard to the situation of COVID-19 and the government policy changes. 1. From May 25, 2020 (from week 11), face-to-face and distance learning classes will be held simultaneously. All courses can proceed with remote classes until the end of this semester, but face-to-face classes are also possible in all subject types (experimental practice, theory-practice, theoretical subjects) if the quarantine requirements set by the university's Infectious Disease Management Committee are met. Even if the class is categorized as a face-to-face lecture, students can take the course online if they wish. 2. Instructors in each class should set the course type (remote learning classes or face-to-face classes) they will proceed with from week 11 with students, announce the chosen course type to students on May 11, 2020 (Monday) after the confirmation from the college and the Infectious Disease Management Committee, and proceed with the course accordingly from week 11 until the final exam. * Experimental practice, theory-practice, IC-PLB, Career Development 1 offline courses can be implemented from week 9 (05.11.(Monday)~) or week 10 (05.18.(Monday)~) after making arrangements with the students. *The decided course type will be maintained until the final exam period but may be changed according to the infectious disease responding conditions or changes in government policies.
