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).
