The United Methodist University (UMU) will today April 21, hold its 11th Commencement Convocation with 551 students graduating.
The program, which starts at 11: 00 A.M., will be held at the Unity Conference Center in Virginia, outside Monrovia.
Former Chief Justice and current chair of the Constitution Review Committee (CRC), Cllr. Gloria Musu-Scott will serve as the Convocation speaker.
A statement released by the UMU administration late yesterday said during the ceremony, 551 students who have successfully completed various academic programs offered by the seven colleges will be awarded degrees in their respective courses.
The 2013/2014 Convocation will witness the awarding of “Certificates of Distinction” to four recent graduates of the university’s Winifred J. Harley College of Health Sciences. The four students made 100 percent pass in the National State Board Examination administered by the Liberia Board for Nursing and Midwifery.
The UMU is owned and operated by the Methodist Church of Liberia, and became a chartered institution in 1998. It is currently headed by Rev/Dr. John G. Innis, Bishop of the United Methodist Church, and chairman of the Board of Directors.
