SANNIQUELLIE, March 23 (LINA) - North Dakota State University in the United States of America has signed separate Memoranda of Understanding (MOU) with four Liberian institutions of higher learning.

The Grand Gedeh, Bong, and Nimba community Colleges as well as the religious ABC University in Yekepa signed the Memorandums of Understanding with the North Dakota State University recently.

The Vice President for Equity, Diversity and Global Outreach at the North Dakota State University, Eve Myers, JD, who signed the MOUs on behalf of her institution, expressed interest in partnering with the four institutions to build the academic capacities of Liberian students, professors, colleges, and universities.

She also disclosed that her institution's interest is in venturing into agriculture in Nimba, while building the capacities of Liberian women organizations to make them self-reliant.

Myers said, under the agreement, students and faculty members of the institutions wishing to advance their education to Master's and Ph.D levels would be awarded scholarships to study at North Dakota State University.

The MOU, she added, also provides for infrastructural development, transfer of technology, students, and faculty members for the advancement of education at these institutions.

Speaking on behalf of the institutions, Dr. Yar Donlah Gonway Gono, President of the Nimba County Community College, thanked the administration of the North Dakota State University and the family of the United Nimba Citizens Council (UNICCO) through whose initiative the opportunities were provided.

The president of UNICCO North Dakota Chapter, Anthony Weh, whose negotiation led to the execution of the deals between the American and Liberian institutions, said UNICCO will continue to help reconstruct Liberia and build the capacity of Liberian citizens.

Present at the signing ceremony were George S.S Woe, the regional supervisor at the Ministry of Education, Fong Zuagele, Superintendent of Nimba County, as well as the presidents of the ABC University, Bong, Nimba, and the Grand Gedeh Community Colleges.
