As 2018 comes to an end, and we bid our farewells to all the memories and welcome in 2019, HYU has also bid its farewells to its dear family members who have worked for the school for many years. Consisting of both professors and faculty members, two retirement ceremonies were hosted for each group on the 21st and 27th of December, 2018.

Joo, who is a professor at the Graduate School of Public Policy, had been teaching since 1987. For over 31 years, he has been a dedicated and passionate professor who has loved his students and his research more than anything else. “One of the most meaningful classes I’ve taught was called Globalization and Development. I’ve taught that class for nine years every semester, and it was to help students understand this rapidly changing world. I’ve also founded the HYU voluntary group, which is also the very first out of all Korean universities. With this group, I’ve been active in the realms of civil societies, corporations, public organizations, and secondary education for over 25 years to revitalize the volunteering spirit in overall Korean society. However, I still think that most voluntary work is the result of other incentives rather than one’s own will. Now that I’m leaving HYU, I would like to say my goodbyes with the hope that the school’s ‘practice of love’ becomes the general university culture, which would also later on change the whole society to a culture of love, respect, and other human values. I hope HYU becomes an educational ground for those who will bring that change.”

Cha is the head of the Office of Student Affairs for the ERICA Campus. He has worked for HYU since 1983 and has shown his dedication and love for the school for 36 years. Of course, he has not only worked in the Office of Student Affairs, but also in the Office of International Affairs, the Admissions Office, Human Resources, and the Office of Public Relations and Planning. “I still remember the days of the late 1990s to the early 2000s when HYU started growing immensely. I was so proud of its rapid growth, and it will be a memory that I will never be able to forget as a faculty member.” Cha’s love for the school and students could be seen as he talked about his plans to teach Korean to foreign students. He also wanted to work as a volunteer at the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA). For his last comments, Cha said, “I have spent two thirds of my life at HYU and have grown with this school. HYU is where it is as a result of the hard work of many people. Those who are remaining in the school should continue to take on this role for the tomorrow of Hanyang. In the future, this school that you will grow with will give you immense strength.”
