USAID is supporting Vietnam’s efforts to modernize its higher education system. In partnership with U.S. higher education institutions and the private sector, USAID is helping Vietnamese universities to improve academic quality and enhance institutional governance to serve as modern models of higher education and drive Vietnam’s socio-economic development. With the opportunity for reforms opened up by the 2019 Revised Law on Higher Education, USAID is assisting public and private universities in Vietnam to improve institutional governance and sustainability, implement curriculum and teaching reform, advance technology and innovation, and strengthen partnerships and industry linkages. Together with the Government of Vietnam, USAID is driving institutional and systemic higher education reforms that benefit more than 150,000 students by better equipping them with the skills necessary for a competitive global market. USAID’s investments in higher education underscore the United States’ commitment to the future of Vietnam and the enduring nature of the U.S.-Vietnam partnership.
