“This MOU signing ceremony marks a special moment for Fulbright as we tie the bond between a liberal arts university and an interdisciplinary research institution,” shared Ms. Dam Bich Thuy, President of Fulbright University Vietnam. “At Fulbright, we inspire students to begin their learning adventure with a core of interdisciplinary courses, enabling them to explore and find their area of interest by seeing the world through different lenses, and learning how to approach and solve problems with multidimensional creative solutions. With this partnership coming to life, our students, even those who just kickstart as freshmen, will benefit greatly as they get to research and gain first-hand experience on an array of applied science projects to start leading the change in their own community.”
