New Dissertation: An Analysis of the Community College Concept in the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam


If you have an interest in Vietnamese community colleges, a fairly recent phenomenon in Vietnam’s postsecondary education system, you’ll want to get  a copy of a new Ph.D. dissertation entitled An Analysis of the Community College Concept in the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam by Cindy Epperson.  Dr. Epperson is Professor of Sociology and Global Studies/International Partnerships Coordinator at St. Louis Community College-Meramec in St. Louis, MO, USA.  Her dissertation is available as a free download

 (Vietnam’s Ministry of Education & Training, Hanoi)

In an e-mail to me and others, Dr. Epperson said that her goal “is to share the story of the Vietnamese community college model with others and encourage the cycle of research along with the development in social capital for my brothers and sisters in Viet Nam community colleges and higher education. “
