The Implementation Process of Autonomy in Local Public Universities: Opportunities and Challenges

Authors : Le Thanh Ha
In Vietnam, autonomy in public institutions has received much attention so far. The implementation of university autonomy, however, must be placed in the specific circumstances of each institution. Especially, in the case of universities directly managed by the Provincial People’s Committee with fundamental differences in uniformity due to subjective and objective factors, it is essential to have a reasonable, practical, and scientific roadmap and steps to ensure positive, proactive and sustainable implementation of autonomy in these universities. To conduct this research, the author uses the method of data collection from 30 state management agencies in education such as the Ministry of Education and Training, the Association of Universities and Colleges, and state legal documents on university autonomy to clarify adequacies and limitations and propose appropriate solutions following the reality and scientific arguments, contributing to promoting the implementation of independence in local public universities to ensure proactive and sustainable integration.
