Liberia: Salvation Army Polytechnic Opens Avenues For Faculty And Student Exchange With Higher Institutions Of Learning In The USA
MONROVIA – The vision of T-SAP is to educate students who will go out and impact their families, communities and country by applying their education with the principle of integrity. For Dr. Urey and his team, the training of teachers is cardinal in fulfilling this vision. In furtherance of this vision, Dr. Urey last December travelled to the United States to seek potential collaborations with colleges and universities in the area of capacity building for T-SAP faculty and possible student exchange programs. He paid a courtesy visit to Dr. Jack E. Daniels, President of the Madison College in Madison, Wisconsin, USA. They discussed a pathway curriculum and capacity development for T-SAP.
In an initial step of capacity development, the Madison College invited T-SAP to send one engineering faculty member to participate in solar energy technology, focusing on how to teach solar energy. After a thorough vetting, Mr. Josephus Sonniful was selected to benefit from the training, which lasted from July 9-11th.
In addition, Mr. Tyler Hook from the University of Madison, a world class university, is in Liberia for six weeks intensive training in the Kpelle Language. Mr. Hook training began last week and will continue through the third week of August.
Courses offered at T-SAP include Building Construction, Electrical Engineering, Automotive Technology and Electronic Engineering. Other courses include Procurement and Contract Management, Accounting, Marketing, Hotel & Tourism Management, Human Resource Management, Public Administration, Economics (Business Statistics), Sociology, Education, Theology, Nursing, Agribusiness, Agronomy, General Agriculture, Agroforestry, and Agriculture Equipment Technology. T-SAP also grants Diploma in Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET).
