Vision

The vision of the faculty as conceived by its founders, is one where “Nigerianness”, nay, ‘Africanness’ of a philosophy for learning is the core of conception, in order to achieve and maintain greatest excellencies in teaching, research, publications and service in the above-listed discipline. In Furtherance of this, each department is saddled with the responsibility of scholarship, yet this learning is to be firmly anchored in the rich cultural traditions of the people of the geo-graphical zone in which the University is located.
