Helping women in Vietnam become academic leaders
ASU’s participation in the U.S. Agency for International Development program Building University-Industry Learning and Development through Innovation and Technology, or BUILD-IT, which the Fulton Schools Office of Global Outreach and Extended Education, or GOEE, helps to facilitate, is helping to expand and improve education in engineering and other STEM fields in other countries. One way GOEE is contributing is assisting the efforts of BUILD-IT in Vietnam to boost the involvement of women in numerous universities in Vietnam, including opening paths for them into STEM leadership positions. That work supports USAID’s broader goal to develop higher education initiatives in Vietnam to help 150,000 students develop skills that would lead to a more competitive global market.
