A former instructor of the University of Liberia has donated a consignment of books on international affairs to the University of Liberia. Dr. Zobong Norman, a graduate of North Eastern University, Boston in the United State of America presented 12 pieces of journals of World Affairs to the Administration of the University of Liberia on Wednesday as his own way of identifying with his Alma mater.
Speaking at the presentation ceremony held in the Conference room of the University of Liberia, Dr. Norman said the gifts to the UL is his family's own way of identifying with the UL family where he and his wife graduated from some times ago.
Dr. Norman said their foundation was laid by the University of Liberia which prepared them to explore the international world something for which they are very grateful to the UL family. He said the Brown Journal of World Affairs covers a wide range of topics including Political Corruption, Indigenous Political Actors, Security and Climate Change among others.
Dr. Norman said he has in stock lots of books and will bring them as research materials for the UL upon his return to the country. He said the books were gathered through donation, and by purchasing them.
Receiving the books, the Vice President for UL Relations, Dr. S. Momolu Gataweh lauded Dr. Norman for his farsightedness in donating the journals which he described as very important to the research department of the University of Liberia.
Dr. Gataweh said unlike Dr. Norman, many Liberians who graduated from the UL have refused to look back to their Alma mater. He said the journals are indispensable materials for the graduate studies and that the books will be turned over to the library of the UL.
Dr. Norman is a graduate of the University of Liberia, a graduate of North Eastern University in Boston, USA; and a former instructor of the Mass Communication Department of the University of Liberia. He holds a Doctorate Degree in Educational Leadership.
