The president of the William VS Tubman Technical College in Harper, Maryland County, Dr. Elizabeth Davis-Russell has disclosed that aboutUS$2 million is needed to revamp the College.
Addressing journalists at the end of an educational forum at a local hotel in Monrovia, Dr. Russell noted that the amount will include completing the ongoing renovation works on the campus, recruit instructors and furnish the buildings.
She said some of the buildings have been renovated and need to be furnished for use.
The president of the college pointed out that the staff of the college expects government to provide a supplemental budget to help them get the task done between now and June of this year.
She said three buildings have been completed, while six others are still being worked on. She told reporters that the college will open its doors to students by September of this year, because there is a grave need for higher level education in the country.
Dr. Russell noted that when the college will have an enrollment of 500-1000 students.
The college is expected to be elevated to a University status.
Tubman College was formerly provided technical education in Electrical, mechanical mining, and other fields. The institution was damaged during the Liberian civil war.
