Through this $2.5 million project, USAID, San Jose State University, and Cisco Systems are collaborating with top universities in Vietnam to strengthen Vietnam’s higher education social work programs to deliver quality education and prepare trained, job-ready, social workers. Following the Ministry of Education and Training's recognition of social work as a profession in 2004, there are now more than 40 universities and colleges providing undergraduate social work training in the country, with more than 2,500 graduates. The program aims to develop systems to strengthen higher education management and administration, devise processes to enhance faculty development opportunities and programs, and develop and employ relevant curriculum adaptable to the changing knowledge and needs of the field. Together with private-sector partner Cisco, the program will create a 21st century model for higher education content and use of technology networks to improve teaching and leadership skills and strengthen collaboration.
