A resource assessment team from National Universities Commission (NUC) has paid a visit to the University to assess facilities and ensure adequate preparations for the smooth take-off of some new academic programmes being introduced by the University.

The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Eyitope Ogunbodede, while receiving the NUC team expressed delight at the calibre of academics and scholars that made up the delegation, pointing to its vast experience in the academia, and dealing with the team not to neglect the University after the exercise. The Vice-Chancellor who noted that their continual support is needed to further develop the various new programs in the Faculty of Education, said “when I saw the cream of people here today to assess facilities on ground for our programs, I was very happy because of the experience on ground. I want you to know that you cannot leave us after the accreditation. We want you to help us develop the programmes”.

He also disclosed the uniqueness of OAU as a University renowned for its massive landmass, citing the location of the Centre of Distance Learning as an example. He equally pleaded with the team to visit the African Centre of Excellence, the ICT hub of the University, saying “OAU is so expansive that we have a Centre of Distance Learning that is bigger than some other universities. I am also pleading with you to visit our Centre of Excellence, to see the facility we have there”.

Speaking further, Ogunbodede disclosed plans by the University administration to review its curricular, adding that it would enable the institution to produce self-employed graduate that would fulfil the ambition of the government.

Earlier, the leader of the team, Mrs. Margret Oyedele, told the Vice-Chancellor that the team is on ground to inspect facilities and to see level of preparations for the commencement of the new academic programs in the Faculty of Education.
