    Management & Staff
    Our vision is to be one of the world's finest universities. Our strategy, Growing Esteem, highlights the importance of research, learning and teaching, and engagement.

    Mission & strategy
    The mission of the University is, thus, to use teaching, research and public service to solve societal problems. In the process of learning, students would be oriented to use education in the solution of practical problems confronting them and the Nigerian society.

    Specifically, the Decree establishing the University provides for the underlisted objects:

    To encourage the advancement of all branches of learning and to hold out to all persons without distinction of race, creed, sex or political conviction, an opportunity of acquiring higher and liberal education;

    To provide courses of instruction and other facilities for the pursuit of learning in all its branches and to make these facilities available on proper terms to such persons as are equipped to benefit from them;

    Summary : These strategies for success will emphasize our desire for high quality education, wise investment of University resources, result oriented and problem solving curricula. These are mediated through the reorientation of staff attitude to effect pragmatic teaching and development, output mix, research, good governance and management.


    Put together, the Mission Statement and Decree No. 34 of 1992 identify the Operational Objectives of the University. Our strategies for their success will be clearly tied to our ability to plan expertly and manage the activities of the University based on extensive internal consultations and consensus building with staff and students through management audit and brain storming sessions. Already many of these are in place and are viable. For instance Academic Planning and Physical Planning Units, Central University Monitoring Committee (which monitors the commitment of staff and students to the objectives of the Decree as well as the tenets of the University’s motto) are functioning effectively. Furthermore, the adoption of Management Information System (MIS) to manage change posed by leadership challenges in appropriate socio-economic endeavours and well planned business initiatives will be vigorously pursued.


    The motto of the University is “Discipline, Self Reliance and Excellence.” The rationale for this motto is that discipline is a pre-requisite condition for the achievement of any goal. Discipline embodies endurance, continuity and determination to start afresh when previous efforts fail.

    It is believed that discipline will give rise to self reliance, which entails confidence in one’s self and abilities. The amalgam of a disciplined mind with self confidence will yield excellence
