Alumni Basics

Who is an Alumnus?

An alumnus is someone who has participated in a U.S. Government funded exchange program.  The U.S. Embassy in Monrovia administers a variety of exchange programs in Liberia, including the Fulbright Program, International Visitors Program, American Studies Program, Humphrey Program and the Voluntary Visitors Program.  For more information on our exchange programs, please visit the Educational Exchange page.

Alumni, Keep in Touch!

All participants in U.S. Department of State exchange programs are invited to join State Alumni, the global online community by and for alumni.

Launched in April 2001, the State Alumni website enables alumni and the people who hosted them in the United States to network and stay in touch with each other.

By simply registering a user name and password with the site, you can access an alumni listserv, a calendar of events, grant opportunities, career development resources, and links to useful information such as online journals. You can also search the database of State Alumni community members to find colleagues, friends, and alumni with similar interests or participate in monthly live Q&As featuring guest speakers.

This interactive site is tailored to its users, who are encouraged to participate in creating the content.  Alumni can post their own news, events, resumes or links.

To register, please visit the Alumni State page

A provisional Bureau of the Liberian Alumni Association named State Exchange Alumni of Liberia  (SEAL) was established in 2011. The bureau is working with the Public Affairs Section of the Embassy to hold a general assembly in the near future. For more information on the provisional bureau, please contact Robert Tanookpuwah.

We look forward to hearing from you and for helping us to make SEAL a strong and vibrant one.
