Dr. Olu Q. Menjay, President, William V. S. Tubman University

Dr. Olu Q. Menjay, the President of William V.S. Tubman University (TU), has announced a groundbreaking development that will revolutionize the educational experience of students at the institution. Through a partnership with the Pedro Ignacio Altamirado Macarrón Foundation of Spain, TU has secured 150 laptops, 5 image projectors, and funding for the establishment of two state-of-the-art computer labs on campus.

In a personal message to the President and founder of the Pedro Ignacio Altamirado Macarrón Foundation, Dr. Menjay expressed deep gratitude for the partnership and educational collaboration between the two institutions.  He highlighted that the donation will significantly transform the university’s educational agenda, propelling it into a new era of innovation and excellence. 

The collaboration not only enhances academic opportunities for the learning community in Liberia but also fosters cultural exchange between Liberia and Spain. The cultural education initiatives resulting from this partnership will enrich the lives of students and promote the Spanish language in West Africa, strengthening ties between the regions, he added. 

Dr. Menjay expressed appreciation for the foundation’s commitment to advancing education. By collaborating with the prestigious University of Malinga in Spain, students from TU will have the chance to study abroad and further develop their language skills in an authentic Spanish-speaking environment. 

In addition to the technological advancements, Tubman University and the Pedro Ignacio Altamirado Macarrón Foundation have agreed to collaborate on joint scientific research, local and international conferences and other scientific events. Dr. Menjay stated that Tubman University stands out as a purple cow in the education sector, pushing boundaries and making a significant impact. 

With this breaking news, TU invites the general public to join in celebrating this momentous event and looks forward to the positive impact it will have on students and the wider community.
