The University Consortium for Liberia (UCL) coordinates diverse academic efforts between Liberia and the global community. Since 2009, we have collaborated with hundreds of students, university faculty, and other academic professionals to increase learning in Liberia and the United States. The University Consortium for Liberia (UCL) provides scholarships to students, faculty and student exchange, study abroad and service learning opportunities between Liberia and partner and member organizations around the world!
Our mission is to help provide brighter futures through education, and understanding.
Our Purpose and Goal
Under UCL, American faculty and students have participated in Faculty Exchange, Study Abroad, and Service Learning experiences providing teaching and training, technical assistance, and capacity building and in doing this, these students have engaged in practical use of their education and studies.
Likewise, Liberian students have received full U.S. scholarships in pursuits of Undergraduate, Master’s Degrees and PhDs with the opportunity to apply what they have learned on campus back home in their communities. The UCL has conducted international conferences, joint research and written grant applications that help to strengthen their programs and initiatives.
The Way Forward
Our consortium is comprised of 18 Institutional Partners from the United States and Liberia. To see a full list of the UCL Institutional Partners visit the UCL Institutions page.
