Many programmes had been launched to encourage union members to learn about Uncle Ho’s biography, career as well as study his style and revolution morality through concrete activities, such as: “ Uncle’s name is immortal” contest of learning and acting due to Uncle’s words at VNU-HCM and member universities, “The youth acts due to Uncle’s words” festival, projection of documentary film, exhibition of pictures,… These activities attracted the attention of more than 20.000 union members and young people.

During last academic year,  many meetings on “Students with Scientific Research” were held at VNU-HCM’s member universities. These activities are not only considered as the most important solution to introduce highly applicable scientific researches to community and students but also to instruct students how to do a scientific research as well as introduce procedures to register for all grade of award. Moreover, academic contests were continueously invested in quality. The number of scientific research in this academic year rose much more than last year (third times): 211 subjects at city and ministry grade, 708 subjects at university grade and 534 subjects at department grade.




Green Summer Campaign was still the main point of volunteer campaign. This year campaign mobilized 2857 students and young officials from VNU-HCM’s member universitites to do duty in 9 towns of provinces in the Western South of Vietnam such as An Giang, Hau Giang and Ben Tre; 9 districts of HCM City and the sister country - Lao.
