Fulbright University Vietnam seeks exceptional candidates to serve as the second President in the university’s history. This is a singular opportunity to play a leadership role in building a new Vietnamese university that is poised to influence and inspire the continued development of Vietnamese higher education. More broadly, though his/her contribution to Fulbright’s growth and maturation, the next President will have a rare opportunity to help redefine how liberal arts universities contribute to the social and economic transformation of developing nations in the context of the emerging opportunities and grand challenges of the 21st century. Fulbright plays a vital and expanding role as a hub of connectivity between Vietnam and the United States and is a highly visible American soft-power initiative in Southeast Asia.

Established in 2016, Fulbright University Vietnam is Vietnam’s first nonprofit, liberal arts university. Our mission is to inspire new generations of diverse thinkers and leaders to serve Vietnamese society and contribute to a better world. Founded on the promise of Vietnamese-American partnership, we practice and teach innovation in pursuit of bold, ethical answers to challenges around the globe. We aspire to be an apex university that educates, innovates, and solves problems across a wide spectrum of fields and disciplines.

Fulbright’s academic programs include The Fulbright School of Public Policy and Management (FSPPM) an accredited graduate professional school incubated by the Harvard Kennedy School; and Vietnam’s first undergraduate program in engineering and the liberal arts and sciences. Fulbright is growing rapidly; in September 2022, we anticipate a total student enrollment of nearly 800 students, including approximately 700 undergraduates.

Fulbright University Vietnam seeks a builder not a manager, to lead the university into an exciting new phase of development. Our next President will join a university that is an institutional work in progress with substantial opportunities for innovation, growth, and improvement. Our academic, administrative, and financial operating systems are evolving; in many cases there is significant room for innovation and optimization.

Fulbright University Vietnam will be supported in this appointment process by the executive search firm Perrett Laver. Applications for the role of President should include a cover letter and current CV. To apply, or to download further information about the role, please visit quoting reference number 6102. Initial enquiries and requests for information may be directed in confidence to Mr. Kieran Pollentine by email at Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
