About Us

The establishment of an institution of higher learning in Liberia has been a dream of the United Methodist church in Liberia for a protracted period.  The dream crystalize  into the idea to establish a United Methodist University in the 1970s, out of the growing  concern to provide programs of higher learning for the increasingly large number of women and men of Liberia and , in Africa generally. Before 1990, there were only two universities in Liberia, the University of Liberia, a state owned institution j, and the Cuttington University College, an Episcopal Church owned institution. With their limited facilities, these two institutions neither could nor accommodated the growing student population.  As a result, a college education direly essential for national development was unobtainable by a large number of Liberians.
