Baze University offers a unique opportunity to develop a university which at once measures to standards of well-established universities in the world and addresses the context of the domestic needs of Nigeria. These needs are high level research harnessing the rich and diverse natural resource base of the country and provision for manpower imbued with character, learning and skills, and good ethics.
Its agenda is therefore focused on sound scholarship, relevance to society's needs and provision of human talents that will facilitate the solution to the everyday and long term development of Nigeria.
To achieve these, it is the responsibility of the leadership of the university to create and nurture a suitable environment through appropriate governance structures, provide the necessary research equipment, tools and services and overall support for scholarly and academic activities in the university.
It is also imperative that the students who are the centrepiece of the university's activities be given the opportunity and support to achieve their aspirations. We want the students to have a nostalgic attachment to the university after graduation propelled by their good experiences in the university. This will provide a solid foundation for alumni activities.
