The English Department Support Fund (EDSF), initiated by graduates from the YUST English Department, aims to provide continuous support for the YUST English Department through the YUST English Department alumni’s voluntary and generous contributions.
Currently, the EDSF team consists of the following four members: Jing Huang (’03), Mei Yang (’04), Ethan Lin (’08) and Ellen Yan (’13). They collaborate to enable the fund to work well. Their job includes raising funds, setting up alumni’s network, building a bridge between the YUST English Department and alumni, writing and sending newsletters, etc.
The EDSF team will regularly transfer the received donations to the YUST English Department, which (rather than the EDSF team) will determine how the funds will be spent. The funds will be mainly used for subsidizing the faculty and staff members, supporting group activities and purchasing office consumables, office furnishings, and gifts to the faculty and staff, etc.
