The Union of Vietnamese Student Associations of the Southern Region (UVSA South) is proud to present the 8th Annual Leadership Summit which will be held at the University of Texas at Dallas on April 3rd-5th, 2020.

UVSA South’s Annual Leadership Summit is a chance for leaders to come together for a fun, but professional weekend. It includes different professional career workshops, real-life discussions, and a lot of different social and bonding activities that help you network later on in life. UVSA South is made up of Vietnamese Student Associations (VSAs) from Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. Our goals are to provide a place that allows the Vietnamese Student Associations to create a professional and social network, take active roles in the community such as community service and philanthropy projects, and to increase Vietnamese cultural awareness. Additionally, UVSA South is dedicated to cultivating the next generation of leaders who will serve as leaders in the Vietnamese community.

Come join us and find your potential while increasing your network with other leaders throughout the region.

About our Theme

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Every person’s individual journey could consist of thousands of different forks and crossroads. A few of these crossroads may have merged to create lasting friends and relationships within your own VSAs. UVSA South looks to bridge these forever twisting roads even further together. Welcome to UVSA South Leadership Summit 8, we are glad to announce that our theme this year will be A Journey through Self-Discovery. Though our winding roads are different, we will adventure altogether. With the chaotic bends of the trails that we travel, whether it’s as first time adventurers within VSA or veterans who have been traveling for years, UVSA South Leadership Summit 8 will group these people together towards a single purpose: To inspire and invigorate you for the rest of your journey. At Summit, we will pass down the knowledge of the leaders and pioneers who have walked before us and also create long lasting bonds with incredible people. And to many, the idea of becoming a leader is a daunting task, but know that the moment you take your first step, whether it’s a thousand miles, or a single stride, you are now carving a path for another person to follow in your footsteps. Join us at UVSA South Leadership Summit 8: A Journey Through Self-Discovery.
