It has been announced by the MOE that 6 local universities will merge into three because of the falling birthrate. The 6 universities are:

National Taiwan University (台灣大學) and National Taipei University of Education (國北教大); National Tsing Hua University (清華大學) and National Hsinchu University of Education (新竹教大); and National Pingtung University of Education (屏東教大) and National Pingtung Institute of Commerce (屏東商業技術學院).

The article continues:

The MOE is prioritizing local national universities that have less than 10,000 registered students. There are 53 national universities and polytechnics that currently have under 10,000 registered students. Legislators of the Education and Culture Committee of the Legislative Yuan announced the possibility that the annual education budget may be frozen.

Heavy, serious situation, which would make me think hard about returning. A lot of people didn't like our Dean, but he made sure the English Department wasn't cut.

You're seriously overestimating the power of your Dean. The MoE - the Taiwanese Government - decides which departments get cut or not.

Not the Dean.
