While aiming at increasing access to university education in Nigeria, Paul University, propelled by the experience of its founding fathers in educational management, character development, and teaching and learning, visualizes itself as “a producer of the best all round graduates in Nigeria, and an institution whose emphasis will be on genuine service”.
In pursuance of the foregoing vision, the mission of the university is to offer access to university education to talented youth, and involve them in the discovery, generation, dissemination, and application of high quality knowledge. This will equip them with self-reliance and enlightened service to the nation and mankind in a collegial atmosphere characterized by the fear of the Lord, academic freedom and critical enquiry.
Our attention has been drawn to newspaper and social media report that Paul University is classified as substandard University by National Universities Commission.
It is important to state that the NUC at its meeting with 20 Private Universities on the 13th of August, 2015 Did not classify Paul University. Awka as sub-standard.
The NUC extended the Provisional License of Paul University along with ten (10) other private Universities by a period of 2 (two) years during which time the NUC would visit to inspect their operations and facilities for the issuance of Full Licenses.
