Connecting – Power On
Khánh Vu and his family immigrated to the USA from
Vietnam during the Vietnam conflict. Khánh graduated
from the Colorado School of Mines with a degree in
chemical engineering and 3 minors. He worked for
Amoco after graduation as a production engineer.
He subsequently went to work for the family businesses:
Oriental grocery and real estate. He helped grow the family
business to become the largest Asian grocer in the region.
After selling the retail business, Khánh continued to work in
real estate. His passion for helping teenagers and fondness
for Mines led him back to accepting the position as the fourth Director of the Multi-cultural Engineering Program (MEP), which Khánh was part of MEP's inception in 1989 as a student and was instrumental in the founding of the Asian Student Association in the early 90's, which later became PASES (Professional Asian Society of Engineers and Scientists) that eventually joined as SASE. As a Society of Asian Scientists & Engineers (SASE) volunteer, Khánh helped plan the 2011 National Conference. Khánh joined SASE full time as the Executive Director in late 2011. Khánh oversaw the doubling of the collegiate chapters and tripling its membership during his 1st year tenure with SASE. He looks forward to growing SASE to its full potential.
Khánh enjoys spending time with his wife, Uyển, and three sons, Thiên Ân “JP”, Thiên Sơn “Vincent” & Thiên Hải “Dominic”. His hobbies include youth ministry, volleyball and cooking.
