Our history – celebrating our Decade
In 2017, EAS Vietnam IHHR Institute celebrated a Decade of Opportunity.
The Decade coincided with the 22nd anniversary of the establishment of EAS Vietnam IHHR Institute, with the first Chancellor being appointed in 1995. To mark this significant milestone in the institution’s history, the Decade Project was established with the primary aim of enabling the Institution to proudly and publicly support its ambitious vision to become an International Institute of Leadership and Administration that is relevant to the needs and aspirations of contemporary learners and the community of the 21st century.
A secondary aim of the decade Project is to provide a vehicle through which the institute can reconnect with the EAS Vietnam Family Tree and lay a strong foundation for a major capital campaign to deliver inspiring and ambitious projects to benefit EAS Vietnam students and the community.
In celebrating the decade in 2017, we acknowledged that although EAS Vietnam IHHR Institute is a young institution in leadership and administration, it has a long, rich history, encompassing more 22 years commitment to providing high quality, accessible education and enriching the community.
Today's EAS Vietnam IHHR Institute is a direct descendant of EAS Vietnam, which first opened its doors to students in May 1995. It was intended by local businesses and community to offer students an education that would fit them for a role in the skilled workforce and raise students out of the ranks of unskilled labourers. The School adopted the image of the 'Door of Opportunity' as a means of expressing to the entire community its purpose and reason for existence.
EAS Vietnam IHHR Institute proudly inherits that spirit and tradition.
Our vision to be open and excellent, creating exceptional value for any student from any background and uplifting the communities in which we operate, is based in strong foundations laid nearly 2 decades ago. There are hundred students from Japan, South Korea, China, Ghana, etc. have studied in EAS Vietnam’s IHHR in 20s.
The Institute of Opportunity and Success
2017 was an opportune time to reflect on our heritage and share our vision for the future – as we strive to create education and training opportunities for students in Vietnam and AEC, TPP area and beyond.
Beyond 2017 however, there are opportunities to use the Decades to aid us in driving our strategic goals and objectives.
In celebrating our Decades, we set the following four objectives:
- be excellent, engaged and accessible in Leadership, Administration standard IHHRM G23.0
- reinvigorate a sense of pride and belonging for all EAS Vietnam staff, past and present
- shine a spotlight on 30 years of student success
- highlight our areas of strength and difference
We will continue using the above objectives beyond 2017 to drive initiatives that have impact on the ongoing and various external engagement and fundraising activities of the Institute.
