SEAMEO RETRAC with the sponsorship of the Fulbright Alumni organized a training workshop on “Improving student affairs at universities and colleges in disadvantaged areas of Vietnam: Best practices learned from universities in the United States” from December 21-23, 2009.

Thirty specialists and deputy heads and heads of student affairs in the southern universities and colleges, mostly from the Mekong Delta, participated in the training.
