University of Mississippi


The University of Mississippi Vietnamese Students Association (UMVSA), strive to encourage and support our members in promoting an understanding of the Vietnamese culture within the university communities and the community at large, to develop and execute programs to support the interests of the university student bodies, to provide opportunities for greater expression of the Vietnamese culture, and to represent Vietnamese students at the University of Mississippi. Furthermore, we aim to cultivate our members in the values of leadership, pride, and service that will allow our members to develop into effective and positive members of society.

UMVSA Goals:
1. Leadership: Encourage our members to become effective communicators and role models in both the Vietnamese-American and university communities, but the Oxford and Mississippi communities at large.
2. Pride: Nurture a sense of cultural pride in our own members, as well as allow others in our community to learn and appreciate the Vietnamese culture.
3. Service: Promote a sense of philanthropic responsibility to the communities encompassing the Vietnamese Students Association.
