OUR MISSION:

The Vietnamese Student Union (VSU), established in 1977, is the official voice of all Vietnamese students at UCLA through its advocacy for the cultural, educational, political, and social welfare of the Vietnamese community at large.

OUR VISION:

VSU strives to provide long term solutions in the communities we serve by promoting social and political consciousness in the context of the Vietnamese American and global citizen. To emphasize necessity and personal relevancy, VSU aims to foster a safe, welcoming environment, improve cohesiveness within our organization, and strengthen our relations with other allies through active collaboration. By creating these stakeholder relationships, we are able to sustain our programs and projects from their investments and supports.
