UMN Crookston welcomes cohort of students from Vietnam starting in 2023

November 9, 2022

It all stemmed from a dual degree articulation agreement with a member of the Vietnam National University in 2020 that led to the recruitment of students coming soon to the University of Minnesota Crookston campus. Chancellor Mary Holz-Clause and Global Programs Director Sok Leng Tan traveled to southeast Asia in late September 2022 to meet with a cohort of students who had just completed their first year of studies at University of Social Sciences and Humanities (USSH) in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and those students are looking forward to coming to Crookston in Fall 2023.

“On this trip we met with the president of the University and our first cohort of eight students to answer any questions they might have had regarding their transition to the Crookston campus next fall,” Tan explained. “Vietnam is an emerging student market for U.S. universities and bringing them to the Midwest will set the stage for more students to come.”
