Speaking at the opening ceremony, Prof. Dr Pham Quang Minh remarked, in the context of competition and international integration, universities are trying to overcome challenges to increasingly validate its position. Therefore, quality accrediation is especially important as it helps identify and deal with the universities' shortcomings in research and training affairs, improving their status and extending their international relations. For USSH, the quality accreditation according to AUN-QA standards is still at the beginning and there are many things left to be done. The Universit commits to enthusiastically cooperating with the AUN-QA council during the whole assessment process.

On behalf of the AUN-QA Council, Assoc.Prof.Dr Tan Kay Chuan highly appreciated USSH's interest in quality assurance and emphasized the role of History as a major in preserving national heritage and identity, thus facilitating the international integration and relations of a country. To ensure the quality of researching and teaching history, the higher education institutions in Vietnam have to possess ample human resources, infrastructure and materials, etc. The role of the AUN-QA delegation is to help the Faculty and the University accurately assess and promote these resources.
