Meeting with the delegation of three universities from Russia

On February 27th, 2019, Prof.Dr Pham Quang Minh (USSH's Rector) welcomed and worked with the delegation of Far Eastern Federal University, Kazan Federal University and Southern Federal University (Russian Federation) led by Prof. Alexander Sokolovsky (Director of the Center for Vietnamese Culture, Far Eastern Federal University). Also participating in the meeting were representatives from USSH's Faculty of Management Science, Faculty of Political Science, Faculty of Philosophy, Faculty of Sociology, and Office for Cooperation and Development.

At the meeting, Prof.Dr Pham Quang Minh sent his warmest greetings to the delegation of the three Russian universities. The Rector said, for today's achievements to be accomplished, USSH as well as many other higher education institutions in Vietnam has made use of the knowledge and experiences gained from both former USSR's and existing Russia's educational institutions. Even in the context of globalization, the Russian partners are no less important in USSH's strategy of internationalization. Therefore, the University hoped to begin cooperation with the Russian universities through such activities as exchanging students and lecturers, conducting common research projects and joint training curricula; and co-promoting international publications.

On behalf of the Russian delegation, Prof. Alexander Sokolovsky highly appreciated the enthusiastic reception by USSH. He suggested co-holding an international conference on the preservation of traditional cultures in the context of globalization, which is expected to take place in the next November.  On their part, the representatives of Kazan Federal University and Southern Federal University introduced some of their social sciences and humanities programs to USSH, especially the master's programs taught in English and Russian languages. The two universities also expressed their desire to participate in said conference by USSH and Far Eastern Federal University.
