Unlocking Global Horizons: SorSU’s Landmark Partnership with Kien Giang University in Vietnam

Sorsogon State University (SorSU) continues to forge global partnerships in the ASEAN region, marking another significant milestone in its international relations endeavors. A ceremonial Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) signing recently took place at Kien Giang University (KGU) in Vietnam on September 12, 2023 solidifying a promising collaboration between these two educational institutions.

The event was gracefully orchestrated by Dr. Nguyen Van Thanh and Dr. Nguyen Trung Cang, both Vice Rectors of Kien Giang University, demonstrating the mutual commitment to fostering academic cooperation and cultural exchange.

The Kien Giang University delegation, comprised of distinguished members, lent their presence and expertise to this momentous occasion. Dr. Nguyen Van Thanh, Vice-Rector of Kien Giang University, Dr. Nguyen Trung Cang, Vice-Rector of Kien Giang University, Ms. Bo Xuan Huyen, Deputy Head of the Cooperation and Science and Technology Office, MA. Nguyen Van Thong, Vice Dean of the Foreign Language Faculty, Dr. Le Hoang Phuong, Deputy Director of the Laboratory Practice Management Office, Dr. Ngo Van Thien, Dean of the Economic Faculty, Ms. Tran Vo Anh Duy, Lecturer of the Economic Faculty, and Ms. Nguyen Thi Bich Hien, also a Lecturer of the Economic Faculty, all contributed to the success of this historic moment.

On the other side of this promising partnership, a delegation from SorSU, led by its esteemed SUC President III, Dr. Geraldine F. De Jesus, traveled to Vietnam to participate in the event. The SorSU delagation included Dr. Vivien L. Chua, Director of the International Relations Office, Prof. Ma. Elena C. Demdam, Campus Director of Bulan Campus, Prof. Corazon G.

By embracing such partnerships, SorSU not only enriches its academic offerings but also strengthens the bonds of friendship and understanding among institutions and cultures across the ASEAN region and beyond. This signifies a pivotal step forward in the university’s mission to provide its students and personnel with a global perspective and a wealth of opportunities for growth and learning.
