Features of student propestes in the pre-revolutionary universities of the Dnieper Ukraine of the 60s XIX century

The article deals with the analysis of complex and multifaceted processes in the student sphere of  Kyiv,  Kharkiv,  and  partially  Novorossiysk  universities.  The  piece  explores  the  problems  of students’ autonomy (Sunday’s Schools, mutual benefit funds, libraries etc.), considered dangerous by  the  Russian  Imperial  government  from  1861-1862.  It  is  underscored  that  the  refusal  of  the reigning regime to indulge the liberal movements of this time caused this wave of student unrest. However, it is important to note that a significant portion of department curators and professors did not support the government’s actions. Special attention is paid to the insurgency of Polish students at  the  university  of  St.  Volodymyr  and  the  reaction  of  the  others.  The  relations  between  the government and the Jewish students as well as the reasons for students’ displeasure regarding some professors’  pedagogical  styles  are  addressed.  It  is  possible  to  conclude  that  the  control  over students intensified, increasing preventive measures in the late 1860's as a direct result of these student protests.
