To become a first-class institution in pursuit of knowledge and scholarship through teaching, research and community service, geared towards inculcating knowledge and entrepreneurial skills to students that will enable them to be productive and self-reliant.

  • To replace unemployment and career stagnation of graduates with creative ingenuity through well-packaged programs and practical training.
  • To provide a sound education to Nigerians irrespective of religious affiliation, tribes, sex and political leaning.

Research Focus/Linkages

The University is presently developing linkage programs with other Institutions and Universities around the world. The focus of research is in the areas:

  • Peace and Conflict Resolution
  • Food Science and Technology
  • Mathematics Education
  • Heritage Studies and Eco-Tourism

The research focus is derived from the unique location of the University in the Benue valley with an abundance of flora and fauna as well as the rich social-cultural traditions of the people of the area that could be of academic interest to researchers. Our community project is Mathematics Education.

We strongly believe that if we engage with our wider community and deploy modern techniques for teaching mathematics we will be filling a gap in mathematics education in particular and science education in general.
