MONROVIA, Jan 19 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf is expected to visit the University of Liberia (UL) Monday after its Board of Trustees discussed a partial report submitted by the Special Investigative Committee constituted, to probe the impasse at the state-run university.
UL Vice President for University Relations, Dr. Momolu Getaweh, said with the approval of the Board of Trustees and in consultation with the Faculty Association and the UL Administration, classes will resume on all campuses of the university on Tuesday, January 21, 2014.
