The 60th Anniversary of Foundation and Development of the USSH (1957-2017)

The University’s history of 60 years of formation and development is full of pride creating many values and cultural traditions of the university with great contributions in different periods of ups and downs of Vietnamese modern history, becoming an integral part of the history of Vietnam in general, of Sai Gon - Ho Chi Minh City, of Vietnamese higher education in particular.

From the foundation of the University of Social Sciences and Humanities in Ha Noi (established in 1949), the University was reborn in Saigon on November 1955 named the French Preparatory Junior College of Social Sciences and Humanities as a member of Vietnam National University in Saigon. On March 1, 1957, under the Decree 45/GD, the University was officially established by the name of the University of Social Sciences and Humanities under the system of Saigon Higher Education Institute (Đại học Văn khoa). From 1977 to 1996, this institution became part of the social sciences and humanities in the University of Ho Chi Minh City (Đại học Tổng hợp). From 1996 to present, the University was renamed the University of Social Sciences and Humanities in the system of Vietnam National University Ho Chi Minh City (Đại học Khoa học Xã hội và Nhân văn). The University’s history of 60 years of formation and development is full of pride creating many values and cultural traditions of the university with great contributions in different periods of ups and downs of Vietnamese modern history, becoming an integral part of the history of Vietnam in general, of Sai Gon - Ho Chi Minh City, of Vietnamese higher education in particular.

 

At present, the University of Social Sciences and Humanities is one of the two largest and most prestigious institutions offering training as well as doing research in the field of social sciences and humanities. It has been providing elite human resources as well as making remarkable scientific achievements for the planning and orientation of important social policies, which makes great contributions to the building of a higher position of Vietnamese social sciences and humanities studies in the region, with the vision of becoming the leading institution for social sciences and humanities studies in Vietnam and Asia.

 

In 2015 and 2016, in order to successfully organize the 60thAnniversary of the University Foundation and Development (1957-2017), the University has done a great deal of preparation for this plan; namely establishing Alumni Liaison Committee; organizing many conferences and symposia; initiating and inaugurating the traditional spatial structure for Saigon-Gia Dinh-Ho Chi Minh City Pupil-Student Movements and the University cultural space (with installation of art sculptures and history bulletin boards, etc.) To comprehensively inherit and develop this plan, the University continues to issue the plan No.12/KH-XHNV-TT&TCSK dated April 24th, 2017 on the organization of the 60th Anniversary of Foundation and Development of The University of Social Sciences and Humanities, Vietnam National University Ho Chi Minh City (VNUHCM) (1957-2017) as follows:
