Vision & Mission


The vision of the University is to lead education reform in Nigeria by providing a world class educational centre of excellence in academics, character, sports and vocational development.

This vision is guided by the need to produce professionals who are sound and agile. Through its academic and professional programmes, graduates of the University will emerge as people with professional skills and become business owners thus assuring each of them a job after graduation.

The Proprietor dreams of leaders and achievers who would be self-reliant, kind and generous, considerate and sportsmanlike. His guiding principle that it pays most who works hardest shall be taught, applied and practiced religiously. Students shall be made to believe in the golden rule that no matter ones background, nothing is impossible; and with hard work, one can make it to the top.

In form and structure, Afe Babalola University is conceived as a citadel for the promotion of an authentic learning environment that puts intellectualism at the center of its tradition. The temperament of universality and excellence shall be imbibed and shall be evident at every level of academic decisions-making in all colleges and departments of the University.

This vision is in line with the policy of the Federal government which encourages public-private partnership. The Proprietor has deployed his vast contacts in business and professional circles to muster support for the fulfilment of the vision.


Afe Babalola University is a result-oriented institution for producing highly skilled and socially relevant graduates capable of applying scientific knowledge for the resolution of social and technological problems. The University is equally committed to transforming students into expert thinkers, innovative managers and resourceful technocrats in all fields of learning.

The context of the university is morally and spiritually holding, with a stable academic calendar, a fully-stocked library, state-of-the-art laboratories and an excellent road network. The university's mandate is to pioneer total excellence along the parameters of teaching, research, performance, sports, community impact and scholarship.
