Westlake University Sixth Board Meeting Convenes in Shenzhen
On 13 October 2019, Westlake University’s first board members held their sixth meeting in Shenzhen. 16 official members participated, while honorary board members, secretaries, members of administrative affairs, and others audited the meeting. The meeting was moderated by the Chairman of the Board: Yingyi QIAN.
During the proceedings, board members reviewed the university’s 2018 financial statements and audit reports, the salary and bonus adjustment plan, and the job responsibilities of various committees under the board's governance. Members and participants also decided to initiate the proposals regarding the amendment of the university’s rules and regulations—the Westlake University Charter—and set the date for the 2020 board meeting.
Four additional members were elected as the honorary members of the board: Zhaoxiong CEN, Bin HUANG, Liushuan NIU, and Xincheng ZHANG. Yingyi QIAN, the Chairman of the Board,, and Yigong SHI, the President of the University presented the certificates to the newly elected honorary members of the board.
According to the university charter, the honorary members are elected societal visionaries who have contributed remarkably to the university’s progress. Up to now, the university has 31 honorary board members.
Westlake University adopts a presidential accountability system under the governance of the university’s board. The board is the ultimate decision-maker in the university. As the fundraising arm of the university, the Westlake Education Foundation decides on the number and the members of the university’s board, and reserves the power to recommend at least one-third of board members, including industrialists, professionals, and outstanding figures from other societal sectors whose meaningful work have been instrumental to the university’s progress.
