Welcome to the Vietnam Institute. We are pleased that you have learned about us and have chosen to visit our website.
The Vietnam Institute is a special initiative by the faculty and administrators of University of Missouri (MU) to promote closer relations between MU and Vietnam. We do so by developing a strategic plan for research and academic programs in Vietnam. Areas of emphasis are: 1) recruiting students and scholars, 2) developing focused MOUs for academic research and training, 3) co-sponsoring workshops and conferences, and 4) maintaining associations with key agencies and particular project stakeholders. These efforts have led to a large increase in Vietnamese students, the signing of several strategic MOUs, conduct of joint workshops, development of research grant proposals, and enhanced relationships with government agencies in Missouri, the US and Vietnam. The Vietnam Institute coordinates and oversees these activities, serving as the nerve center for all of MU’s Vietnam-related activities.
