CU Prexy Vows To Uphold Academic Excellence
By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, September 21 (LINA) - Cuttington University (CU) President, Dr. Herman Brown, has said his administration will uphold and further strengthen the standard of academic excellence at the University.

The Episcopal Church of Liberia in May elected Dr. Brown as the new President of Cuttington University, the church’s highest institution of learning in the country.

Briefing the press Tuesday in Gbarnga, Dr. Brown said students entering and leaving the walls of Cuttington must be adequately prepared to serve the society.

He pointed out that the lack of effective comprehension, writing and speaking skills were common among many university graduates, noting that this should claim the attention of authorities of various higher institutions of learning in the country.

The former Dean of the Trinity Cathedral in Monrovia said his administration will pay keen attention to upgrading the output, literary and analytical skills of students at the institution.

Dr. Brown said as part of plans to achieve this goal, he will ensure that lecturers and professors are well capacitated to help the university put out competent men and women to serve the country.

In a related development, the CU President has said there is no plan to increase non-tuition fees this semester.

He noted that although the Board of Trustees of the University has instructed him to maintain the 25 percent increment reached by it, he was carefully studying the situation.

At the same time, Dr. Brown has vowed to expand the President’s Scholarship Initiative for duxes of various high schools from other counties, but said the grade point average will be increased from 2.5 to 3 points.
