Chen Gang (Chinese: 陈刚; 1977 – March 23, 2011) was a lecturer at the Hefei University of Technology, located in Anhui province in central China. Chen killed himself by jumping out of a 12th-story window in a campus building on March 23, 2011, after he found out he had lost out to a rival to become the next Communist Youth League leader at the University. In Chen's suicide note, he asserted that the selection process was unfair and riddled with corruption, and accused the university's top leaders of collusion. Chen's case gained national notoriety. Chen's family attempted to blame Chen's suicide on the university administration, while the university leadership refused to acknowledge any responsibility.

quote
  • "Nearing the end of each dynasty, the governments were invariably infested with corruption, but at least the imperial examinations [which determined the promotion of mandarin officials] were an oasis of due process. If even these exams could be conducted at will ... well, then the dynasty is nearing its demise".
