We are proud to announce that we have 18 Institutional Partners who have provided leadership and support to Liberia over the past 6 or more years and for this, we are truly thankful.  As we look to the future together, we want to thank our partners, stakeholders, sponsors, alumni, and friends for their generous donations and sponsorships to help UCL scholars to further their educational dreams and goals. We are also pleased to announce that Dr. George T. French, President of Clark Atlanta University, will be joining our leadership team as the Honorary Chair, and Dr. Michael Best, Georgia Tech Professor with the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs and School of Interactive Computing will serve as an advisor to the UCL on IT solutions, interactive computing, and e-learning.

As we embark on our fundraising goals for 2021-2022, during this difficult time of the Coronavirus pandemic, we hope that you will join us for some unique fundraising activities including our $.50 Cent Campaign, Virtual Auctions, and Special On-Line Events/Webinars to help raise funds to help support our UCL Scholarship Program.

Meet Our 2017 UCL Scholars: Randolph Glee

Randolph Glee

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).
