Establish as an outlet and space for the University community to access policies, resources and information on gender related issues, the Centre organizes Seminars, workshops, research, training, sensitization and advocacy to create awareness mostly to indigents and women folks for self-reliance. The Centre has help in shaping Niger States and the immediate University’s community perception on gender related matters. This is attested through the recent advocacy program in collaboration with the RAISE Foundation headed by the Governor’s wife Her Excellency Dr. (Mrs.) Amina Sani Abubakar in 2018. In deed this is a proof that the Centre goes beyond the university in its plans and activities. In addition, the Centre has in its plan an education advocacy programme for indigents, girl-child drop-outs, child and early marriage victims (Another Chance) to get them back to school system streamline. In the near future, a degree programme in Gender Studies will kick off. However, to experience optimal success there has to be a flow of funds from government agencies, international and non-governmental organizations. This will enable the Centre to promote the University to become a pillar in promoting a just and equitable society with equal opportunities.
