ABSTRACT

This article examines the specific contents and causes of the Sungkyunkwan University dispute that occurred in 1955, focusing on the issue of dismissal of Vice-President Lee Jeong-gyu, which was the starting point of the dispute. Lee Jeong-gyu, who was appointed as a professor at Sungkyunkwan University in 1947, played a big role in the early development of Sungkyunkwan University by helping Kim Chang-sook. In particular, he contributed greatly to the expansion of the faculty and the school building. However, in January 1955, Lee Jeong-gyu was dismissed as vice-president. Sungkyunkwan University was immediately caught up in a dispute. The dismissal of Vice-Chancellor Lee Jeong-gyu in 1955 and the resulting dispute at Sungkyunkwan University was a pain that occurred in the process of establishing the identity of Sungkyunkwan University in the early days. Vice-President Lee Jeong-gyu’s dismissal came from a conflict with President Kim Chang-sook. The root cause of this conflict was the identity problem of the school, which arose in the process of developing Sungkyunkwan University based on Confucianism into a modern university.
