As Prof. Dr. Le Vinh Danh took over a new role among Van Lang University’s BoD, he shared his thoughts: “I was able to comprehend the in-depth visions of Van Lang University’s administration. Among my 40 years of employment, I spent 31 years with a particular higher education institution. My heart and soul are dedicated to the higher education sector. Once a university has pursued the right path, no effort could make it go another way because a university’s history is much greater than a person’s life. The first decisive foundation stones are essential targets to help orientate a university’s development.

As I chose to join Van Lang University, it was my consideration to come back and dedicate a higher education institution. At Van Lang University, I will join hands with the BoD to write out new stories. Thanks to my previous journeys, I acquired much knowledge to help map out the best way to achieve our new goals.

When Prof. Dr. Le Vinh Danh get assigned as Van Lang University’s Senior Advisor, Dr. Nguyen Cao Tri – Chairman of the University, said: “Van Lang University set out many goals such as becoming one of the most admired young universities in Asia by 2030 and executing functional movements to achieve this target. Therefore, we prefer to encourage the brightest individuals in the higher education sector to join and achieve our common goals.”

Van Lang University’s BoD, including the Administrators, Deans, and Department Heads, dedicated a warm welcome to Prof. Dr. Le Vinh Danh and hoped his participation should encourage significant inspirations and efforts for the BoD to carry out the strategic targets shortly.

PROF. DR. LE VINH DANH is a renowned expert in Vietnam’s higher education section. He received the Meritorious Teacher award in 2008, the Third-class Labor Order in 2010, and the Second-class Labor Order in 2016.
