For school staff members, the retirement ceremony was held on June 28th at the new administration building. The 12 staff members also included those from both the Seoul and ERICA campuses, who worked at departments including general affairs management and the administration office. The dean of HYU also joined the two ceremonies to deliver his gratitude.

Kook Bang-hyun has worked at the Seoul campus administration office for over 31 years. Having started in 1986, HYU has been a huge part of his life. “I have so many memories on this campus. Ever since I started working here, I’ve worked at a variety of departments and participated in numerous school projects. I've had amazing colleagues and amazing professors to work with. I also know that my successors are so talented that I have no doubt that they will now lead this beloved school to develop.”

Lee Jong-tae has worked at the general affairs office at the ERICA campus for 25 years. “I started working in 1993. I actually started at the Seoul campus, but worked longer at ERICA. Luckily, I was able to take part when both campuses were in the process of major changes. Throughout the years they have both changed drastically and I believe more changes for the better are to come. I’m retiring now, but I can see myself visiting the two campuses quite often in the future. Also, I’m not sad to leave, but rather quite excited to see how much it will have changed the next time I come back.”
