Ministry hauls SISU department for violation

A TRAINING department at the Shanghai International Studies University was found violating frugality rules when it organized a group trip to Thailand for 24 teaching staff and 20 of their family members between February 1 and 7 last year.

Those who participated in the trip were ordered to return all 300,000 yuan (US$49,476.38) spent during travel.

Mei Deming, director of the training department, was given an administrative warning, according to a statement posted on the Ministry of Education’s website.

Another case involved principals of the Law School of the Lanzhou University of Finance and Economics, where stipends for 19 students from needy families were embezzled to organize a graduation party, including dining and entertainment, according to the ministry.

School leaders Liu Yongbin and Bao Zheyu and the class headmaster, Liu Yan, participated in the party, which cost about 35,000 yuan.

All of them were given administrative warnings, the statement said.

The ministry urged all institutions to strengthen disciplinary supervision to build a clean and frugal environment for education and guarantee the rights of the students.

All violations must be punished to ensure full implementation of policies issued by the central authority, the statement said.
