Dear Students, Families, Friends, and Partners:

It is my pleasure to share our 2017 brochure with you students, families, friends, and partners. We want to ensure that our stakeholders have pertinent information about the United Methodist University in Liberia.

The United Methodist University is a co-educational Christian institution of higher learning serving a diverse student population.

The United Methodist University offers diploma, associate, bachelor, and master degree programs in several disciplines within seven (7) colleges: (College of Education, College of Health Sciences, College of Theology, College of Management and Administration, College of Liberal and Fine Arts, College of Science and Technology, College of Agriculture, and the Rev. Dr. John G. Innis Graduate School of Theology across four (4) campuses in Liberia.

The University affiliates with several universities in Africa and the United States of America, and has memberships in various prestigious organizations(see page 15). We are ranked as the third university in Liberia by the National Commission on Higher Education.

The University currently has a capital campaign underway to build a new state of the art University campus on 52 acres of land near the Roberts International Airport. The new campus will provide our students and faculty with the requisite educational environment for enhancing quality teaching and learning.

It is our prayers that as you go through this brochure, you will be able to quickly learn about the different colleges and programs at the United Methodist University. Please contact the appropriate dean listed on pages 17-18 for additional information.
