The University of Liberia (UL) is set to resume all academic activities this Monday, June 27, 2022 as planned, following a fruitful meeting facilitated by the Liberia Council of Churches between the Administration and Faculty.
The mediation meeting was held on UL Capitol Hill campus on Saturday, June 25, 2022, and had in attendance the Board of Trustees represented by the Chairman and a member, and some members of the University Cabinet.
Following the meeting, President Julius Julukon Sarwolo Nelson, Jr., wrote Dr. Edna Johnny, President of the University of Liberia Faculty Association (ULFA), thanking her leadership for the continuous sacrifices aimed at ensuring that UL students are prepared for the task ahead as future leaders.
The mediation meeting reached several vital decisions regarding the reopening of the school and the general progress of the University.
It was agreed that all employees on UL payroll that were affected by the double dipping situation will return to status quo ante, pending a judicial review of the stipulation in the Code of Conduct.
Secondly, a technical team will meet on Thursday, June 30, 2022 to do an inner review of the Social Security process prior to an external meeting with other stakeholders including the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning (MFDP).
It was also agreed in the meeting on Saturday that classes will resume on Monday and the ULFA will have a General Assembly on Wednesday, June 29, 2022 to inform their members on the outcome of the decisions reached in the meeting.
Additionally, it was agreed that information dissemination will improve between the UL Administration and ULFA. A technical team will meet in two weeks to review the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that was signed among the Government of Liberia, ULFA and UL Administration.
In the wake of this latest development, the Administration of the University of Liberia has called on all faculty members, students, administrative and support staff to prepare for the reopening of school this Monday, June 27.
