Senator Taylor Cautions UL Students Against Violent Protest

By Wilfred Gortor, LINA

MONROVIA, March 23 (LINA) - Bong County Senator Jewel Howard Taylor has urged students of the University of Liberia (UL) to always be civil in expressing their grievances to administration rather than engaging in violent demonstrations.

She said ‘there is absolutely nothing wrong with protesting as people will sometimes express their dissatisfaction through such medium,’ but warned that it should be done in a rather peaceful manner and not allowed to turn violent.

"Our focus on protest is that it must be peaceful and not result into an incident that goes out of control,” Taylor told a press conference Tuesday on the campus of the University of Liberia, following an earlier announcement by the UL administration of increment in tuition.

Taylor, who is acting Chair of the UL Board of Trustees, noted that the decision by the UL administration to increase tuition was over the years communicated to the student leadership and that the students at this time must be willing to contribute to the growth and development of the institution.

Taylor emphasized that the UL is interested in providing an enabling environment where students can learn to realize their fullest potentials, and that the administration is endeavoring to make sure that UL has qualified teachers who will provide the training that is necessary so that the University can graduate students with the requisite qualifications.

Established in 1862, the University of Liberia currently has a student population of over 35,000 and a current annual budgetary allotment of US$15 million. It currently has the lowest credit hour rate in the country as well as in the West African region.

Students at the university will now pay US$4.00 per credit hour fromUS$2.05.
