Three Troy University students recently took part in the seventh University Scholars Leadership Symposium in Hanoi, Vietnam.
Dinh Tran Mai Khanh and Dao Tri Duc, seniors and global business majors at two of TROY’s teaching sites in Vietnam, and Troy Campus sophomore bio-medical sciences major Kaitlin Beyler attended the symposium, which was attended by more than 700 students from 69 countries.
The symposium featured a variety of speakers and socialization components designed to develop leadership and life skills.
“Troy University was very proud to be represented at the seventh University Scholars Leadership Symposium,” said Hal Fulmer, Associate Provost and Dean of Undergraduate and First Year Studies. “As Alabama’s international university, it was especially important to us that two of our student representatives came from our teaching sites in Vietnam and that our Troy Campus student representative has a heritage from the country of Vietnam. Every day, the world gets more connected and these kinds of opportunities for our students are preparing them as leaders in a truly interconnected future.”
The symposium took place from Aug. 1 through Aug. 7.
