Member Schools

Representing the Vietnamese collegiate community from various colleges across Southern California, Vietnamese Student Associations continue to strive towards their specific missions. UVSA provides a space for these organizations to collaborate through the Inter-Collegiate Council. Each member organization assigns 1-2 representatives to assist in the coordination of inter-collegiate events. Membership into the Inter-Collegiate Council is voted upon and approved with simple majority of existing council representatives in office. Organizations listed below include those that are active, probation, inactive, and suspended.

Active Members

Active members are organizations who have Inter-Collegiate Council Representatives with voting rights on the Council. Each member organization receives 1 vote on the Council regardless of the number of representatives assigned by the member organization. An active member with probation status is permitted to participate but not vote. Probation status is generally assigned to a new member and then upgraded to active member with a simple majority vote by current Council representatives.
