It is with pleasure that I welcome you to Elizade University, a citadel of knowledge that seeks to be a globally competitive institution, which produces entrepreneurial, innovative and ethical graduates. The University is driven by strategic developmental agenda, which is embedded in the Vision of the Founder, Chief Michael Ade.Ojo. These include engagement of quality faculty members to complement high quality students, leveraging on the infrastructural endowment of the University for excellence, innovativeness and creativity, zealousness in academic delivery and research, attainment of world-class status and primal position in Nigeria, deployment of modern technological tools in teaching, research and administration and entrepreneurial empowerment through robust skill acquisition programmes. This carefully drafted developmental agenda has continued to drive the University towards the attainment of its Vision, as evident in the various feats recorded by the University in the recent time.
The University, which took off in January, 2013 with 64 students, 13 programmes and two Faculties, has experienced all-round geometric increase. At the mid-term review of the rapid progress made by the University, the institution had a total of twenty-five (25) fully accredited programmes in the Faculties of Basic and Applied Sciences, Engineering, Humanities, Social and Management Sciences and Law, with about 1,500 students in the 2020/2021 Academic Session. The University has also mounted seven (7) additional undergraduate programmes. They are Nursing Science, Medical Laboratory Science, Political Science, Sociology, Architecture, Quantity Surveying and Estate Management, while the National Universities Commission (NUC) has given the University approval to run 15 Postgraduate programmes, both at M.Sc. and Ph.D. levels.
As part of its efforts at achieving its goals, Elizade University has been consistent with its engagement of seasoned academics and professionals, who have continued to impart relevant knowledge in the students, using modern teaching and learning facilities provided by the University. The University has recorded exemplary student and faculty achievements in terms of attracting grants and winning awards.
The adoption of iLearn platform by the University and the development of lecture notes by lecturers and the uploading of same on the University’s website have simplified teaching and learning in the University. With this platform, students are afforded the opportunity of reading ahead of their classes. This is a global practice that has encouraged reading among our students.
Elizade University has also signed Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) with some selected top Universities across the world. Prominent among these is the ORT Braude College of Engineering, Israel, where we send our students for a 3-month intensive practical training in selected programmes. The University also has a growing list of partnerships with relevant professional bodies for the enhancement of knowledge.
These feats have been made possible by the Vision of excellence endowed in the University by the Founder, who is the pillar in the funding of the institution. I am, therefore, privileged to be the head of this institution, which is on the drive for innovation and excellence.
