NUC Approves 15 Anchor University Programmes In Maiden Accreditation

The vice chancellor of Anchor University, Lagos, Professor Joseph Afolayan, says the National Universities Commission has given its approval to the university’s 15 programmes presented during its maiden accreditation exercise.
Professor Afolayan made the disclosure during an emergency senate meeting of the institution recently.
According to him, 13 of the programmes were presented for accreditation in October/November 2019 as required by the commission’s guidelines.
He said the full accreditation of the programmes is a further proof of Anchor University’s culture of excellence.
The vice chancellor appreciated members of the senate for their efforts during the exercise, saying “the result is an encouragement to the university.” He also encouraged them not to relent in their efforts.
“We thank God for this good news. We were well prepared for the exercise and we should be happy about the results and ensure that we do even more. Considering that the exercise was our first as a university, I am most delighted and appreciate all your contributions,” he said.
Also speaking while presenting the details of the results to the senate, the deputy vice chancellor and director of academic planning, Professor J. O. Fatokun, said the result was an encouragement to the university and everyone who contributed to the exercise.
“All our programmes were accredited by the commission. Even more, none of the programmes had an overall score below 80 per cent, while many scored well above 90 per cent,” he enthused.
The programmes presented for the accreditation exercise were Bachelor’s degrees in Accounting, Economics, Mass Communication, Business Administration, Political Science, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, Microbiology, Physics, English and Literary Studies, and History and Diplomatic Studies.
Eleven of the programmes were granted full accreditation, while Physics and Economics were placed under interim status.
Anchor University began operations in 2017.
