1952 was a special year for Chinese high education, as a countrywide and far-reaching adjustment was held in colleges. It was frequently called "college and department adjustment". All the famous universities were involved into it. Many departments of different colleges were combined. Therefore, after this adjustment, some universities enlarged and strengthened, whereas others were harmed and weakened.
