History

With the creation of the Faculty of Education in 1976 from the Faculty of Arts, two Departments, namely Curriculum and Teaching and Continuing Education started in the 1977/78 Academic Session. By 1981/82 Session, a new Department was created out of Department of Curriculum and Teaching known as Department of Educational Foundations and Administration. The creation of this Department gave a wider spectrum to the study and teaching of Educational Administration and Planning as a course. Consequently, the Department of Educational Administration and Planning (now Educational Management) was formally created from the Department of Educational Foundations and Administration in 1997/98 Academic Session.
