what's the steering comitee
The Steering Committee is just a bunch of assholes that help run Hope’s Peak.
One of their ‘achievements’ was creating the Reserve Course, but Yaskue Matsuda describes it like this:
“People are sheep… They are drawn to a name, and the school took advantage of that to get more money.”
Just a bunch of characterless, money-grubbing generic rich people, but literally everything is their fault because they were fucking up the school before Enoshima even got there.
Oh also, the Izuru Kamukura Project. The Steering Committee and Board of Trustees are basically the same thing–so they were responsible for funding and covering up the Project–and blackmailing Yasuke Matsuda into helping with it.
Also, the covered up Natsumi and Sato’s deaths so… there’s that.
Shitty rich people, basically.
