Community Service Activites:

For years, community service activities of VNUHCM have followed a thorough strategy with clear goals and widespread projects over Viet Nam key economic zones. VNUHCM is practicing one of genuine standards of a university – a place not only to transfer knowledge and create new values for humanity but also to transfer spiritual and scientific values into life’s real values.
With this goal in mind, in recent years, VNUHCM has frequently organized working visits to many regions of Viet Nam such as the Southeastern region (Ho Chi Minh City, Dong Nai, Binh Duong, etc.), the Central Highlands (Lam Dong, Dak Lak, Dak Nong, etc.), the Southwestern region (Mekong Delta), and the Central. Through the visits, the heads of the steering boards of the Southwestern region, the Southeastern region, the Central Highlands, leaders of provinces along with leaders of VNUHCM identified various aspects for cooperation to strengthen linkages in human resources training and scientific research in order to contribute to the socio-economic development of the region. As a result, a number of specific action plans have been proposed and implemented. Until now, VNUHCM signed several MOUs in cooperation with local governments and designed specific action plans for separate economic zones and provinces.
In regards to businesses, VNUHCM has strengthened cooperation with major enterprises and organizations such as Vietnam Electricity, Vietnam Export Import Commercial Joint Stock Bank (EXIMBANK), Vietnam Oil and Gas Group (Petrovietnam), An Giang University, University of Medicine and Pharmacy,…in order to extend the possibility of developing its resources with a view to supporting the education development to meet social demands. Cooperation with other agencies/organizations/enterprises has created favorable conditions for VNUHCM to enhance the quality of training, teaching and scientific research for its students and lecturers.
