WELCOME NOTE BY THE VICE-CHANCELLOR
Welcome to Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida University, Lapai, where ” LEARNING FOR SERVICE “ is our watch word. Our departments, research centers and units help to foster the intense interdisciplinary approach that shall inspire much of the anticipated outstanding research achievement of the University and make IBBUL a leader in so many fields of human endeavour, both locally and internationally. Our focus is on students, teachers and researchers. We believe it is important that our students realise the full significance of critical thinking and creativity. It is an approach especially suited to confronting many of the hugely complex challenges that face us all today.
IBBUL students will be among the most talented in the nation and the world. They will bring an astounding range of interests and experience to a richly diverse and exciting undergraduate experience.
They will be students who engage the examination and shaping of thought with passion and rigor. They will be students who strive to make their own mark on a more knowledgeable, productive, responsible, just and peaceful nation. IBBUL’s faculty will be a centre of great teachers and distinguished scholars, eager to involve undergraduates in their research.
Our curricula combine powerful interdisciplinary vision, in-depth pursuit of a discipline, and extraordinary opportunities for individual exploration and growth. The 21st Century requires rigorous, broad, and imaginative undergraduate training, as well as a profound understanding of what we all share as human beings. I invite you to join us at IBBU Lapai for that is why we believe that the greater we can make IBBU Lapai, the greater its contribution to the well-being of the nation, and the world you and I share.
