Benue State University Vice Chancellor's Message.
Welcome to the website of Benue State University, Makurdi. Since the inception of Benue State University in 1992, its leaders have articulated and pursued a shared vision and mission.
Vision: “To be the University of First Choice in Nigeria and Africa and among the top 200 in the world”.
Mission: “To be a centre of excellence in creating knowledge and developing a complete person who is capable of not only responding to the cultural, social, political, and economic needs of the environment, but also setting the agenda for change”
In the pursuit of the vision and mission, the University has made modest progress. This is evident in the quality of its academic curriculum, programmes, and the number of graduates occupying various positions and contributing to the progress of institutions and organizations in different parts of Nigeria and in the Diaspora. The aim of this administration is to continue to build on the gains of our predecessors and pursue the vision and mission with sustained vigor.
Bearing this in mind, we have laid down elaborate development plans that seek to provide a conducive academic environment for both Staff and Students that would facilitate better and quality research, learning, and administration.
The task of moving Benue State University forward to an enviable position of global repute is very challenging. I therefore call on individuals, the private and public sectors, corporate organizations, and other stakeholders to partner with the management of the University in order to provide the required infrastructure such as lecture halls/theatres, students residential blocks, Staff offices, and ICT facilities particularly the Networking of the entire University campuses using Fiber optic cables.
The University is grateful to its Proprietor, the Benue State Government and especially the Visitor to the University, the Executive Governor of Benue State, His Excellency Dr. Gabriel Torwua Suswam for his immense support for the University.
