The new and dynamic Ag Principal and Vice Chancellor of the University of Sierra Leone, Prof Ekundayo Thompson and his team, recently launched an initiative to mobilize resources for revitalizing the University. In my statement to the Workshop, I called for a Renaissance, inspired by the legacy of Athens of West Africa, to get the University back to its leadership role in the pursuit of knowledge and education in Sierra Leone. Successful countries all boast of higher education establishments leading their transformation through research, producing high quality graduates, and enjoying academic freedom to challenge and confirm national policies and practices in all fields of human endeavor. See the statement on www.sierraleonesignposts.com. Will they respond?
