Loyola University Chicago is First U.S. Institution to Have Site Location in Vietnam

The Loyola University Chicago University Newsroom is reported on March 11th that it has become the first institution in the United States to establish a site location in Vietnam.

I received this news update through my Loyola University Chicago student e-mail account as I’m a
doctoral student in the Cultural and Educational Policy Studies Program focusing on Comparative and International Education.

Here is a snippet of the press release:

“CHICAGO, March 11, 2009 - Loyola University Chicago has partnered with the Vietnam Ministry of Education and Training to establish a University Representative Office in Ho Chi Minh City. The partnership, which became official in February, makes Loyola the first University in the nation to have a site location in Vietnam.Through the office, Loyola will work in three critical areas of need: English as a Second Language (ESL) education for health-care professionals, leadership programs for Vietnamese professionals and administrators, and study-abroad programs for U.S. students. Details and timing of the ESL and leadership programs are still being worked out. However, the study abroad program will commence this summer.”
