Our educational vision is of "Making Many Mighty". It was on, the 6th of August 2002 at 4.20am, whilst Archbishop was before the Lord in his Prayer Chambers that the Lord delivered to him the vision of Salem University. The vision was stirred up in October 2004 while in a Council Meeting. He proceeded to get the form which was the starting point of series of activities that led to the approval and licensing of the Salem University on 17th of May, 2007 by the Federal Government of Nigeria. As a Christian University, we intend to model our students on the teachings of JESUS.
The Name SALEM UNIVERSITY
Salem simply means PEACE.
It is our partnership pact with parents/guardians, students and staff that we shall provide a peaceful learning environment:
- To guarantee the continuity of academic programme, instead of incessant strike action that truncate academic progress. This will help us raise quality graduates.
- To raise leaders who shall be peaceful at home, at work and in the society at large. Our world has troubles enough; our world is waiting for leaders of peace in their various calling. But Jesus said in John 14:27 that
"Peace I leave with you. My peace I give unto you; not as the world giveth give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."
We are out to raise graduates with such peace in their spirit, their soul and reflecting in their physical behavioral pattern of non-violence to their fellow human beings. This is the reason we are introducing such relevant courses as Peace and Development Studies.
This commitment is to help raise leaders that will promote peace in our world. They, therefore, must be spiritually alive, mentally alert and physically developed to change our world for good.
Our Founding Philosophy
The philosophy of Salem University is to empower and transform our students to be:
- Spiritually alive;
- Intellectually alert;
- Physically disciplined; and,
- Socially adaptable to transform their world.
