Universities partner with US agency in education reform

The US Agency for International Development (USAID) launched a US$14.2-million partnership on Monday 1 August 2022 with three leading Vietnamese universities to strengthen higher education, writes Minh Nga for VNExpress.

The Partnership for Higher Education Reform project will be carried out over five years to have Indiana University work with three Vietnamese universities – Vietnam National University-Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam National University-Hanoi, and the University of Da Nang – to improve their academic quality, enhance institutional governance, and enable them to serve as models of modern higher education across Vietnam.

Funded by USAID, the project will collaborate with the World Bank and key government officials from the ministries of education and training, finance, planning and investment, and science and technology, and industry partners including Purdue University, Amazon Web Services and the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry, to “benefit more than 200,000 students and equip them to thrive in an increasingly competitive global market”, the US Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City said in a press release.
