Vice Chancellor's Desk
It will be recalled that TANSIAN University was one of the EIGHT private Universites approved and licensed on May 17, 2007 by the National Universities Commission (NUC). The overriding consideration of Government in approving these Universities was to address the major problems affecting education at the Tertiary Level with specific reference to inadequate access to University education as well as observed tendency towards enrolment of students in excess of the carrying capacity of the available Universities.
It has been strongly asserted that if private universities are to make the urgent and much-desired positive impact upon tertiary education in Nigeria , they must dare to be different.
As daunting as these challenges clearly are, it is our carefully considered opinion at Tansian University that we are well prepared and adequately motivated to tackle and overcome them. With God on our side, we have no doubt in our minds that we will achieve these goals quite soon.
We are poised to make Tansian University, the OXFORD or HARVARD University of Africa. All machineries have been placed in motion to achieve this goal.
It is my privilege and pleasure to offer you the opportunity of being a partner with us and in the pursuit of this noble endeavour.
