Description
This collection comprises the records and publications of the Vietnamese Student Association (VSA) at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) from 1979 to 2019. Some materials document activities that were co-sponsored with other Vietnamese American associations.
Background
Since 1979, the Vietnamese Student Association (VSA) at the University of California, Irvine has striven to educate both the student body at UCI and the local community about the Vietnamese American culture. VSA continually provides students with the opportunity to learn and to participate in community efforts. In addition to its dedication to the UCI community, VSA also works with the Vietnamese community at large. VSA at UCI has a long and rich tradition within the UCI campus, as well as the community, as we are one of the oldest VSAs in the area. VSA prides itself in its involvement in an array of community-based programs such as a mentorship program with local high schools, participation in the annual Lunar New Years Festival, and numerous activities with other Vietnamese organizations throughout Southern California.
