Ajayi Crowther University, ACU has denied the rumour spread about by mischievous elements in the University that the institution has shut down.
The Management of Ajayi Crowther University wishes to inform the general public that the University is not shut down as apparently being rumoured by mischievous elements in the University.
Rather, the University is currently on Easter break from Wednesday 12th April 2017 to Sunday 23rd April 2017. Immediately after, the Mid-Semester Examinations will hold from Thursday 27th to Friday 28th April 2017. Although, the University experienced recently a very common incident of unruly behaviour by some students who have appeared before the institution’s Students’ Disciplinary Committee; leading to the expulsion and suspension of students found guilty, given the University’s highly cherished character of a faith-based Christian institution governed by rules and regulations in conformity with Christian Ethics and commitment to raising Godly intellectuals.
In this wise, the University insists that its students be disciplined, well dressed, punctual at lectures and worship service, among other requirements as dictated in the institution’s Students’ Handbook on rules and regulations. Consequently, the University will not allow any act of cultism, taking of narcotic drugs and alcohol, sexual immorality on campus and other dissident behaviors that are at variance with the principles of a faith-based institution.
The Management is doing its best to ensure academic excellence, protection of the rights of the students, provision of sporting and recreational facilities, and a serene, safe and conducive environment for learning. Moreover, Ajayi Crowther University is comparatively a very low fee charging private University in Nigeria; the University allows payment of fees in three instalments. The University Hostel facilities, which provide students with the desired comfort, are owned and operated by Dioceses of the Anglican Church. Fees charged for accommodation are not just inclusive of residency; electricity, water, refuse disposal and salaries of hostel management staff are also components of the overall school fees.
The University provides students with relatively adequate facilities to guarantee their peaceful and progressive study experience in the University. Expectedly, the University is staffed with distinguished Professors and other categories of qualified academics who ensure that the institution continually rank among the best in the various courses of offer in the University. In the same spirit, the University provides scholarship to students including cash awards to those who are recognized as University scholars on the basis of the exceptional students’ Cumulative Grade Point Averages (CGPAs) in First Class and Second Class Upper Division. Gladly, all academic programmes are accredited.
Ajayi Crowther University remains the preferred choice for parents and candidates who seek education in Godly environment. The University has credibility as it has a Bishop of the Anglican Communion as the Vice-Chancellor, Chief (Dr.) Wole Olanipekun (SAN) as the Pro-Chancellor, Professor Emeritus Ayo Banjo as the Chairman, Board of Trustees and Sixty-Five Bishops of the Supra Diocesan Board (West) as Proprietors.
