University professor is the new Council deputy head

TAIPEI -- An assistant professor at National Dong Hwa University has been named the new deputy head of the Cabinet-level Council of Indigenous Peoples, the Cabinet said in a statement Wednesday.

Chen Chang Pei-lun (陳張培倫), an assistant professor in the university's Department of Indigenous Development and Social Work, will assume the post left vacant by Kao Yang-sheng (高揚昇), who took over as Deputy Taoyuan County Magistrate on July 31.

Chen Chang, a member of the indigenous Bunun (布農) tribe whose aboriginal name is Tunkan Tansikian, has spent many years researching the rights of indigenous peoples and served as a consultant to the council, the Cabinet said.

The Cabinet said it expected Chen Chang to continue to contribute his expertise to indigenous peoples' affairs and help improve their education and enhance international cultural exchanges.

Kao succeeded Yeh Shih-wen (葉世文), who stepped down from his post because of involvement in a high-profile corruption case.
