Name: Randolph Glee (Ph.D. Candidate)
School: Clark Atlanta University
Major/ Concentration: Social Work policy/Administration
Degree level: Ph.D.
1.Why do you choose your major / concentration?
I chose Social Work because my country (Liberia) has suffered many years of civil conflicts. As a result of these conflicts, the academic, social and political fibers have been broken. To gain our post war status or get on path with other nations we need professional social workers, who will get into the communities to work with community dwellers on community projects. Moreover, Liberia needs professional social workers who will conduct evidence based research and present findings to parliament for better policy to help the vulnerable populations (elderly, Children, women, orphans, homeless, and disable).
2.What do you love about your school?
I love Clark Atlanta University because it is a HBCU. The Dean of the Social Work Dr. Jenny L. Jones is caring and her faculties are wonderful.
3. What is your favorite food?
Palm Butter with Rice.
4. Who is your number one role model and why?
My role model is Dr. Emmet A. Dennis Former President of the University of Liberia. Dr. Dennis is my role model because he believes in human capacity development and institutional change.
5. When you were younger, what did you want to become and why? Did that change when you got older? If so, why?
As a boy growing up, I always wanted to be a pilot, but my country Liberia doesn’t have such opportunity for that career.
6. What is your favorite thing about Liberia?
I love Liberia (1000 times) because we are easy to forgive and forget.
7. What would like to do, after obtaining your degree?
After the completion of my study, I will be on my way to Liberia to teach at the University of Liberia.
8. Do you have message for UCL?
I would like to thank the UCL family for their meaningful contributions. I pray that they do more to keep students in school.
