Langston University to Support Higher Education Initiatives in Liberia

Langston University, the historically black educational institution in Oklahoma, has signed a five-year agreement with Liberia, the African nation that was settled by a large number of former U.S. slaves. Under the agreement, students from Langston will study abroad in Liberia. Langston University will provide five scholarships for students from Liberia to study in Oklahoma. Langston will also initiate a cooperative relationship with Liberia’s Center for Agriculture Research and Development.

Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf spoke at this year’s commencement ceremonies at Langston University.
