We are laying the ground for Tri Viet’s academic and research mission by partnering with organizations and individuals in many countries. The breadth, diversity and quality of these linkages both inside the country and internationally determine to an important extent the strong potential of Tri Viet’s success and stature as a flagship educational and research institution.
1. Partnership Roadmap
Partnership is sought first at department and school level, to serve specific curriculum development and teaching. When appropriate, Tri Viet will enter into partnership with whole institutions. Partnership is also sought with professional and other human resource associations to build up Tri Viet’s workforce recruitment base.
At the same time, Tri Viet also seeks mentoring at the institution’s level on issues of orientation, strategy, policy and implementation.
2. Partnering and Networking
We are currently partnered up/linked with:
Academic and Research Establishments at all levels (University, School, Department), such as:
Hoa Sen University (Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam)
Saigon High-Tech Park (SHTP) Training Center (Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam)
Auckland University (New Zealand)
Arizona State University (AZ, USA)
De Anza College (CA, USA)
Portland State University (OR, USA)
California State University-Fullerton (CA, USA)
Civil Institutions, e.g., Professional Associations, Foundations, such as:
Viet Nam Green Building Council
The Ford Foundation (USA)
The Asia Society (USA)
Association Internationale pour le Developpement de l’Education au Vietnam - AIDEV (France)
Businesses, such as:
Our networking since 2007 has reached a very diverse plethora of groups and individuals. We do not target just academics and professionals, but are reaching out far and wide to businesses, employers, community organizers, diplomatic missions, artists and performers, international organizations, etc., in short, anyone sharing our interests and supporting our educational vision and goals. We are constantly looking for opportunities to broaden our outreach while at the same time working on solidifying mature relationships into concrete partnerships.
Of particular importance to Tri Viet’s growth is its linkage with the Vietnamese diaspora overseas. Tri Viet has the ambition to become an academic hub for overseas Vietnamese professionals in all fields and of all generations. International faculty of Vietnamese descent are in an ideal position to lend their intellect and expertise to an international in character, but Vietnamese in identity, university. Although teaching will be given predominantly in English, having faculty with an affinity in culture and language with the students is a priceless advantage. Apart from engaging academics and researchers, we have a working relationship with diverse members of the diaspora, such as the Vietnam Strategic Ventures Network (VSVN), an association of entrepreneurs of Vietnamese descent with chapters in the United States, France and Viet Nam; Friends of Tri Viet has an office in Toronto (Canada) and a website (www.friendsoftriviet.com); VN 2020 and the Institute of Vietnamese Culture and Education – IVCE are helping us promote Tri Viet in Singapore and the United States, respectively.
