Vietnamese Americans & Higher Education


Listen to the full interview and podcast here.

UNAVSA hosted two experts on higher education (Mike Hoa Nguyen, a PhD student, and Dr. Dolly Nguyen, a professor) who discuss the role Vietnamese Americans play in higher education, barriers to educational attainment, and how the SFFA v. Harvard lawsuit will impact our communities.

UNAVSA wants to educate our community on systemic barriers to educational equity, the role of data and categorization in education, factors in educational attainment and disparities, and explaining the relevance of affirmative action and holistic admissions to our communities through a summary of SFFA v. Harvard. We hope this sparks increased dialogue about pertinent sociopolitical issues within the education and policy sectors, especially around controversial issues like affirmative action and holistic admissions.
