President Sirleaf to Visit UL Monday

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.

A UL release said given the urgency of the impasse, the Special Investigative Committee has submitted a partial report to the Executive Committee of the UL Board of Trustees.

According to the release, administrators, faculty and staff are asked to resume normal duties effective Monday, January 20, 2014.

The UL Board of Trustees and administration appreciate the continuous patience and understanding of the faculty staff, students and the general public, especially the eagerness of the students to return to their classes, the release said.

The UL has remained closed since November 2013, when the faculty association and the student union called for the resignation of the Vice President for Administration, Dr. Wede Brownell.
