Covenant University

Nigeria Nigeria Online March 2018

Our Vision To be a leading World-class Christian Mission University committed to raising a new generation of leaders in all fields of Human endeavor. Covenant University is a part of the Liberation Commission that God gave to the Presiding Bishop of the Living Faith Church Bishop David Oyedepo, (Ph.D.) some years ago. The appropriate forms of intent to establish a private university was submitted to the National Universities Commission (NUC) in March 2000 and by July… [+] 15th 2001, the verification team of the National Universities Commission came for the inspection of facilities and programmes. On 12th February 2002, the Federal Government officially presented the certificate, which granted Covenant University the license to operate as a private University in Nigeria. University is a growing, dynamic vision-birthed, vision driven University, founded on a Christian mission ethos and committed to pioneering excellence at the cutting edge of learning. We are driven by the compelling vision of raising a new generation of Leaders for the African Continent on the platform of a Holistic, Human Development and integrated learning curriculum, in order to raise Total Men who will go out to develop their world. Our Core-Values of Spirituality, Possibility Mentality, Capacity Building, Integrity, Responsibility, Diligence and Sacrifice are what defines our commitment to excellence. Our experiences over the last few years strongly indicate the great potential we have as a University in instituting a learning context that is rich in educational opportunities, research and scholarship. Our aim is to build a world-class university that will be a pride of Africa as well as take its place among the Ivy league Universities on the global platform. Our mandate as a University is to revolutionize the educational landscape of Africa. Ours is indeed a rescue mission in education, driven on the platform of Christian ethos and life transforming values. The integration of the fundamental requirements stipulated by academic and professional quality assurance bodies, a global-outlook and impact driven learning emphasis, provides a powerful synergy for empowerment in enabling the inculcation of intellectual and creative abilities via a platform of a solid commitment to self-discovery. Our Mission To create knowledge and restore the dignity of the black man via a Human Development and Total Man Concept driven curriculum employing innovative, leading edge, teaching and learning methods, research and professional services that promote integrated, life-applicable, life-transforming education relevant to the context of Science, Technology and Human Capacity Building. Our Core Values Our leadership thrust is built on covenant values which we refer to as our core values. 1. Spirituality This refers to instilling the fear of God into the life of men and women in the university particularly our core product; the students. It is an understanding that no one can have genuine feeling for men without the fear of God. This is why the fear of God is a fundamental requirement for effective leadership. Most of the greatest leaders of all time in bible history were men who lived by the fear of God. Joseph said "but I fear God", Job the greatest business leader of his time was reported to be "a man that feareth God and escheweth evil", Daniel, the great, we were told will not defy himself. We believe the fear of God is fundamental to a successful career in leadership and since our vision and mission is to raise a new generation of leaders, which is considered the greatest need of this generation, particularly in our part of the world. The fear of God remains the non-negotiable factor in the pursuit of our mandate. God delivered the criteria for leadership to Moses through Jethro his father-in-law as recorded in Exo. 18:21-24. The criteria as listed in above scripture among others are as follows: Able men, which talked about capacity, that is men equip to deliver. Such as fear God, men of truth. This means that capacity is not enough, therefore the fear of God is what makes capacity to deliver. There is no doubt there are too many able men in this country, why are we still a victim of poor leadership as a people - it is the lack of the fear of God. 2. Possibility Mentality We at Covenant University believe that the mental picture of a man is what defines his actual future. Our mission is to stimulate the dream of royalty and dream of dignity into our students so that they can begin to develop a royal attitude, cultivate royal habits and form royal character so as to fulfill the Covenant University dream of raising a new generation of leaders. James Allen once said "a man is literarily what he thinks". It was Manley Snergy that said, "sow a thought, reap an act, sow an act reap a habit, sow a habit reap a character and sow a character reap a destiny". This fully validate the scripture that says, as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he (Prov. 23:7). 3) Capacity Building Capacity Building here centres around skill development and we believe that lack of skill can kill any dream. While spirituality and mentality positions man for leadership, it is capacity that enables him to deliver. Capacity Building in this context can be defined as possessing the ability to deliver a given task. This is why Covenant University will remain committed to academic excellence and continue to drive our students through the crucible of personal development in pursuit of their individual dreams. It is skill that turns trash into treasure. Our mission is to inculcate an untiring quest for capacity building, enhancement of professional capabilities and personal development into our students. We saw in scriptures how a team of nonentities as reported in 1 Sam. 22:3 turned out to become mighty men of valour by 2 Sam. 23:8 through the "magic" of skill development and capacity building. 4. Integrity Lack of accountability in our view is the bane of leadership in our nation. When truth is off the street, destinies are trampled under feet. There is need to recapture the virtue of integrity in our society today. Someone has said, "people hear what you say, but they will only end up doing what you do". Leadership by example therefore is the greatest need of our time. Until you can boldly say "follow me" you are not qualify to lead. This takes hard work, not of flesh and blood, not of strength and vigour, but of heart and conscience. It is working on oneself to be worthy of one vocation. 5. Responsibility It was Malcom Forbes that said "a man who enjoys responsibility usually gets it. A man who usually likes exercising authority usually loses it. We are committed to inculcating a sense of responsibility to our students. We expect them to respond to issues as demanded not as convenient. We believe in the place of discipline for effective leadership. It was George Washington that said "Discipline is the soul of an army, it makes more number formidable, it procure success to the weak and esteem to all". Here at Covenant University, our students are not permitted to do what they like but they are compel to do what is right at all times. 6. Diligence Nothing enhances worth like work. Every high flyer is known to be a hard worker. You cannot eat your cake and have it. You cannot make omelet without breaking eggs. Every leader is a worker and every committed worker is a potential leader. Here at Covenant University, we believe in the dignity of labour. We extol the servant-leadership philosophy. We believe that commitment is the greatest qualifier for attainment. We believe that no one is committed to lead without taking the lead. And we believe that taking the lead demands that one goes the extra mile. This is why hard work is one of our celebrated core values. We expect all our students to be hard workers, tireless workers and creative workers. Sees thou a man that is diligent in his business he shall stand before kings he shall not stand before mean men (Prov. 22:29). Where you find yourself tomorrow is a function of your diligence today. Nothing works like hard work. 7. Sacrifice Every great leader of all time has a story rooted in sacrifice. Sacrifice is the ultimate price for outstanding leadership. It is quality sacrifice that defines great leadership. No one can get out of life more than what he is willing to put into it. Jesus Christ paid the ultimate price at the cross, gave his life a ramson. Today, about 2/3 of the world population still subscribe to his leadership, 2,000 years after he departed the planet earth. You cannot lead a course indeed for which you are not willing to give all you've got. Sacrifice in our view is going the extra mile, paying the extra price and giving it all it takes within and even beyond your powers to deliver the goods. Our students are being trained to raise altar of sacrifice in the pursuit of their dreams and vision. You cannot impact the world without paying a global price. It is sacrifice that makes stars. Every star carries a scar of sacrifice (Luke 12:49-50). [-]

Adekunle Ajasin University

Master MSc MA Nigeria Nigeria Online March 2018

About Adekunle Ajasin University The story of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko (AAUA), Ondo State, Nigeria, is more appropriately told in two phases. It was first established as Obafemi Awolowo University in March 1982 by the government of the old Ondo State, headed by the late Chief Adekunle Ajasin. The immediately succeeding military government of Navy Commodore Bamidele Otiko changed its name to Ondo State University in 1985. Its relocation to Akungba-Akoko… [+] in the new Ondo State became imperative in 1999, following the creation of a new State out of the old Ondo three years earlier in October 1996. The bill backing the relocation was signed into law by the then Governor of the State, Chief Adebayo Adefarati, in November 1999, and that prompted the movement of a crop of workers from the old site in Ado-Ekiti to Akungba-Akoko on 1 December 1999. Our Vision and Mission Statement To be a foremost institution that moves manpower development in the direction of self-reliance, apprenticeship, a first class university in research, knowledge, character and service to humanity. Our Mission Statement To provide knowledge and skills for self-reliance in a conducive environment where teaching and research can take place. Student Organizations Student organizations are created and run by students with support from the Office of the Dean of Students Affairs. Over 1000 students of Adekunle Ajasin University are involved in student organizations which include NGOs and religious organization. These students impact the university community and their lives. Varsity Logo PREAMBLE The LOGO of any corporate institution worth its name is the manifest symbol of the soul of the institution. It is the cameo representation of the vision, aspiration and hope of the institution. The symbolism of the LOGO has its focus on the future and dares to hope to endure throughout Time. This is the pad upon which the LOGO of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko, Ondo State, Nigeria is launched. THE SYMBOLISM The symbols of the LOGO of the University tell their story in three media: pictures, colours and text. Observe that the centre of the LOGO is taken up by an open book – a clear reminder that the primary function of the institution relates to opening the book of knowledge to young eager and creative minds. Rising from the East is a young sun with its brilliant, yellow rays irradiating upon the open book illuminating the knowledge that the institution aspires to open to its protégé. Sharing centre-stage with the book are the symbols of the economic heritage of the State that produced this vibrant institution. The symbols of cocoa and kolanuts remind the institution that its central purpose is to use its knowledge to enhance the economic potentials of the State. These primary symbols are superimposed on gently lapping waves symbolizing humanity and stating that as long as humanity exists, this purpose stands constant, unchangeable. Represented in a black wavy line is the symbol of bitumen and petroleum – vital aspects of the economy of the State and areas upon which the University must make a credible impact. Enfolding these primary symbols is a circle of two halves: the top half bearing the name of the University in royal purple while the lower half carries the name of the community that houses the institution – a clear message signifying the symbiotic unity of town and gown in the common agreement that together this highly dignifying purpose will be achieved and achieved in a spirit of love (symbolized by the colour blue) and unity. Supporting this sphere is a couple of intertwined horsetails symbolizing the cultural heritage of the State. The implication of this is that the mission parameter of the institution includes and is upheld by the mandate to enrich, enhance and showcase the cultural heritage of the State in particular and the Nation’s in general.Last, but by no means least, is the banner bearing the text that spells out the message of the LOGO in unmistakable terms: FOR LEARNING AND SERVICE. Notice: the text is embedded in a rich-soil brown colour ̩signifying the expectation that this mandate is planted in a rich fertile soil in which it will grow and flourish. Let it be so, O God! [-]

Fountain University

Nigeria Ibadan March 2018

History The formation of Nasrul-Lahi-Il-Fatih Society (NASFAT) - the Proprietor of Fountain University- was originally focused on prayer meetings for the Muslim elites, with a view to creating necessary opportunity for them to interact and rub minds with Islamic scholars on the one hand; and to enhance their knowledge about the principles and practices of Islam, on the other hand. The desire of the Nasrul-Lahi-Il-Fatih Society (NASFAT) to establish a University… [+] was borne out of its educational policy and plan enunciated at its strategic Retreat held at Akodo, Lagos, in the year 2000.

Paul University

Nigeria Awka March 2018

From the VCIt is with immense pleasure that I welcome our students, their parents, guardians as well as friends and all stakeholders to the Paul University website. We commend you all to the unflinching love of the Almighty God and the grace and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ, in Whom all things subsist. Paul University, Awka is the brain-child of the Bishops of the five Ecclesiastical Provinces (currently comprising 55 Dioceses) of the Anglican Communion east of the Niger,… [+] whose vision to establish a novel University became a reality on November 3, 2009. It was on that date that the University received, from the Federal Government, the Provisional License to operate as a full-fledged private University. This was followed by an inaugural ceremony on November 30, 2009. The take-off site of Paul University is the premises of former St. Paul’s College, Awka, founded by the Church Missionary Society (CMS), an evangelical arm of the Church of England (Anglican), in 1904 as a college for the training of Church workers and teachers of various categories. The campus is thus a hallowed ground, providing an ideal academic environment where students and staff, under Christian discipline and administrative guidance, are maximally focused in their academic pursuits with little distracted. The permanent site of the University is at Oji River, on the Awka-Enugu expressway,and plans are under way for its development. The goalof the University is grounded in the records of excellent posted by our forebearers, the Anglican Church, in pioneering primary and secondary education in Nigeria, and in inculcating sound morals along with impeccable intellectual preparation of students. Anglican schools in the past, with a structured supervisory system, laid great emphasis on the total man – his intellectual, physical, social and spiritual development, and on his discipline and the fear of God, which is indeed, the beginning of all wisdom. It is these accumulated experiences that the Bishops sought to bring to bear on tertiary education in Nigeria, ensuring that when Paul University puts its stamp of achievement, in both character and learning, on any of her products, a truly trained and well-adjusted individual has emerged to join in the undeclared war to save the soul of our great country, Nigeria. As our motto says,“Here am I send me”,our products are made “Ready to be sent.” Currently Paul University offers twenty-six programmes of study in three faculties, namely, Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Management and Social Sciences, and Faculty of Natural and Applied Sciences and the Institute of Theology. Our curriculum lays emphasis on academic achievements, and acquisition of practical and entrepreneurial skills, which enhances the versatility of our students in the world of work and job creation.We have on our staff list highly experienced and erudite faculty, carefully selected as true role models for our students. The University is anchored on the core values of spirituality, excellence, diligence, and moral rectitude. On the foundation of the Protestant Ethics of hard work, prudence, justice, truth and honor, we hope, under God, to propel the University to a higher pedestal from its present position. Paul University would be an enviable institution, a model for faith-based universities in the country, with predictable academic calendar and highly dedicated staff, and producing enterprising graduates, sound in learning and character, future leaders who would drive development and enterprise in the country. As Paul University grows, our website will form a gateway and an exchange medium for our students, staff and proprietors to dialogue, inform, educate and exchange information with our various admirers, colleagues, alumni, benefactors and friends. Therefore this website promises to be a rich medium of exchange. Paul University, as a budding world class institution has initiated several national and international linkages and interuniversity cooperation agreements in order to encourage student and staff exchange, research cooperation and staff development. These will be greatly facilitated through the medium of Information & Communication Technology (ICT), with the backbone of Web Technology. I wish you a very happy interaction and we look forward to your participation in whatever way you think can be mutually beneficial. Ven. Prof Uche C. Isiugo-Abanihe Vice-chancellor October, 2016 Vision & Mission Vision While aiming at increasing access to university education in Nigeria, Paul University, propelled by the experience of its founding fathers in educational management, character development, and teaching and learning, visualizes itself as “a producer of the best all round graduates in Nigeria, and an institution whose emphasis will be on genuine service”. Mission In pursuance of the foregoing vision, the mission of the university is to offer access to university education to talented youth, and involve them in the discovery, generation, dissemination, and application of high quality knowledge. This will equip them with self-reliance and enlightened service to the nation and mankind in a collegial atmosphere characterized by the fear of the Lord, academic freedom and critical enquiry. [-]
