As campuses across the state of Georgia open and students return to school, a group of 12 Savannah State University students and 2 Savannah State University professors will have exciting stories to share from their Summer study abroad in Liberia.
Associate professor and interim chair of the social work department Dr. Roenia DeLoach and assistant professor of social work Dr. Adrien Anderson led the students on the trip in mid-July. While in Liberia, UCL president and Liberia’s Honorary Consul General in Georgia, Cynthia Blandford hosted the group with University of Liberia president Dr. Emmet Dennis. The group also met with US ambassador to Liberia Christine Elder.
Over the course of the week-long trip, the Savannah State team discussed establishing a social work program with the University of Liberia and the African Methodist Episcopal University. The group also explored post-Ebola recovery strategies for orphans, other areas of partnership and follow-ups on books donated by Savannah State University.
This group is a shining example of the experiences that UCL facilitates and the benefits of academic partnerships. View photos of the Savannah State team at the University of Liberia below.Read More
