Please describe briefly any activities your institution is already carrying out, which are relevant to UNAI and its principles: 
In 2014, the University established the Coca-Cola Institute for Innovation to serve as a bridge between undergraduates research and university-wide research activities. The Institute is a hub for undergraduate students to probe, discover and present innovative ideas and solutions to issues and problems of national concern. Just recently, the University collaborated with UN Women and Orange to raise awareness on prevention and elimination of violence against women and girls. A town hall meeting was organize in the University’s auditorium with students to show a documentary on gender-based violence in Liberia and engaged them in a discussion with a panel of experts on SGBV and development partners. Additionally, we have a Growth Scholarship that promotes capacity-building in higher education which recognizes both non-teaching employees and faculty.
