MU Geographical Professor, Gail Ludwig taught at Hanoi National University of Education as visiting professor for two semesters in 2009 and 2010.

Also, the MU Department of Geography offered undergraduate and graduate courses entitled “Themes in the Cultural Geography of Vietnam” within a period of three years.

Dr. Chi K. Vu, through the introduction of Dr. Gail Ludwig, connected with Dr. Joe Hobbs at the Vietnam Institute/Department of Geography, and later was invited to be the instructor for this course in one semester. Dr. Vu said that her time at MU deepened her interest in development issues in Vietnam, from which she has broadened her works to other current topics.
