UL To Probe Disturbance On Sawyer’s Day -Announces Reopening on June 6, 2022 -Threatens to revoke degrees of students, If….

The University of Liberia has announced a seven committee to investigate the March 31, 2022 disturbance on its main campus on Capitol Hill which temporarily disrupted the People’s Day of Honor Celebration in honor of the late Dr. Amos Claudius Sawyer, former Dean of the Liberia College. The committee is headed by Dr. Lester Tenny and has a mandate of one month to conclude and report its work.

The committee also includes 4 Vice Presidents of the University, Sekou W. Konneh, Norris Tweah, Benetta Tarr and Viama Blama as well as Prof. T. Debey Sayndee and Rev. Nelly Wright all members.

In another development, UL Faculty Senate & Administrative Council, at a special called meeting held yesterday, Thursday, April 21, 2022 have voted and endorsed a recommendation from Academic Affairs to resume classes on Monday, June 6, 2022. The endorsement was contained by a vote of 57 senate and council members in attendance. There was no “nay” vote against or absentia to the recommendation to open school on June 6, 2022.

The decision to reopen school on June 6 is based on the first phase of the UL renovation currently taking place. The first phase includes repairing and creating additional bathrooms, re-roofing, the supply of water to bathrooms via the drilling of borehole tube wells (drilled wells) to remedy the limited supply of water in restrooms on both the Capitol Hill and Fendall campuses, among others.

The first phase of the renovation is expected to last six weeks, hence the June 6, 2022 reopening revised calendar.

Other information from the University has it that all incoming graduate and professional school students must make a mandatory 35 percent payment of tuition plus fees prior to the commencement of semester just as the university said will henceforth revoke degrees of graduates for non-payment of tuition for graduate and professional school graduates.

Meanwhile, UL has announced the appointment of Dr. Lester Tenny, as Acting Dean of the A. Romeo Horton College of Business and Public Administration.
