Both parties discussed and proposed numerous new points for the upcoming Plus 3 program

For two consecutive years, 2018 and 2019, the Plus 3 program organized by Pitt and UEF was successfully conducted, creating many valuable memories for students from both universities. Absent for 4 years, the program has now begun to have its initial plans to “reboot”, which marked the return of Plus 3.

The program is expected to be held in May 2024. Some activities will still be maintained and deployed similarly to continue the success of previous years. Alongside that, many new activities are added to innovate the program. To keep up with the trend of international integration and sustainability, the main theme and activities will change accordingly.

According to the plan, knowledge about sustainable development will be conveyed to participating students by experienced economic experts. Correspondingly, field trips are organized to help students explore Vietnamese tourism and culture, along with exchange, academic, and learning activities.

After two hours of meeting, many contents were discussed and added to the plan. This promises another practical semester abroad, enhancing cross-country friendships between students from both universities as well as the partnership between UEF and Pitt. Let's look forward to and actively participate in this particular program, UEFers!
