An Giang University (AGU) was created as the second university in the Mekong Delta in 1999. Before gaining approval from the Ministry of Education and Training, it was a teacher training college. The former Rector of AGU was Dr. Vo Tong Xuan and Mr Le Minh Tung. The new Rector of the University is Dr Vo Van Thang.
Remaining close to its roots as a teacher training college, AGU produces many graduates who will go on to teach in the surrounding provinces of An Giang, Kiên Giang, and Đồng Tháp. In addition to this, and because of Dr. Xuan's long history with agricultural and rice production, the school has a very strong agricultural program producing graduates who continue to promote sustainable agricultural development throughout the Mekong Delta.
