Indian Former Honorary Consul General to Liberia Dr. Upjit Singh Sachdeva was a proud recipient of his second degree, Doctor of Humane Letters (LHD) Honoris Causa. At the 60th commencement convocation of the Cuttington University (CU), Dr. Sachdeva was hooded by the authorities of the University. This brings to two honorary doctorate degrees of the same category that the former Honorary Consul General of India has bagged.
The first was from the African Methodist Episcopal Zion University in April 2021, where he delivered the university’s commencement convocation address.
Dr. Sachdeva’s second Doctorate Degree came as a result of his caring nature and a man with faith in others, goodwill, repute, and accomplishments unblemished by wealth and worth. Before his conferred honorary degree, the President of the Cuttington University, Dr. Romelle A. Horton highlighted the honoree’s profile as, Dr. Upjit Singh Sachdeva is an accomplished businessman, philanthropist, and diplomat. As a businessman, his business empire spreads across the globe with investments from Liberia to the United States. He is a real estate mogul, hotelier, timber products dealer, pharmacy operator as well as a general merchant in building materials with storefronts scattered across the metroplex. In his philanthropism, he is recognized across Liberia as a force in several humanitarian causes from feeding the homeless population, and the less fortunate to donating to emergency situations.
The former Indian Honorary Consul General holds several other awards and accomplishments within reason of imagination. His accolades and recognition have earned him a place on several boards of corporations and institutions including the University of Liberia, Booker T. Washington Institute (BWI) including Cuttington University.
The Indian Business Man has presented papers, lectures, and presentations at many functions from Liberia to South Africa, India, and Canada. His recognition in many quarters and disciplines of life indicate how versatile he is as a businessman and scholar, who believes in paying it forward but holds a firm belief in the upliftment of others, comity, and relationship. He has been a true friend of Liberia and the Liberian people.
The university in recognition of the above-referenced facts, likewise appreciation for his selfless services to humanity and Liberians, the Board of Trustees and Faculty Senate of the Cuttinton University thereby confer upon him, Dr. Upjit Singh Sachdeva, the Degree of Doctor Humane Letters (L.H.D.) Honoris Causa, with all the rights and privileges thereto appertaining.”
