Vision & Mission

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.


From the VC
It is with the greatest pleasure, and a strong faith in God that I welcome our students, their Parents, Guardians and all stakeholders to the Paul University Website.

Paul University, Awka, Nigeria is the brain-child of the Bishops of the five (5) ecclesiastical Provinces of the Anglican communion, East of the Niger, whose vision and mission to found a novel University became a reality on November 3, 2009. It was on that date that the University received, from the Federal Government, the Licence to operate as a full fledged private University.

Our objectives as a University are grounded in the conviction that the records of our Anglican forebears in primary and secondary education management in Nigeria and elsewhere, will be surpassed several folds by the impact, successes and contributions which Paul University will make in tertiary education in Nigeria.
