September 16, 2019

The concept of Convocation may seem strange to most foreigners, but for Vietnamese people, it has been a long and living tradition. 

The idea of Convocation, literally “a calling together,” in the West symbolizes a ceremony in which the University community celebrates newly enrollingand returning University students, and reaffirms the values and progress of the University itself. 

In Vietnamese tradition, Convocation is a celebration at the start of the new school year to honor the value of learning.

Fulbright University Vietnam has been recognized by Ambassador Daniel Kritenbrink, the U.S. Ambassador to Vietnam, as one that “takes the best of the American tradition of liberal arts and sciences education and advances it through the lens of Vietnam’s aspirations, identity and history.” Fulbright’s Convocation Ceremony, in turn, is where tradition meets creativity.
