By law, every University in Nigeria which runs degree Programmes, such as the ones that our Global leaders (student) here present have enrolled into, must ensure that such Programmes have proper academic content, adequate number and mix of staff, well established library collections, and significant funding. These attributes are assessed by the National Universities Commission (NUC) when newly established Programmes have run for at least two years. The assessment is to determine whether these Programmes are run at such quality level that the University can continue to admit students into them and/or graduate such students.
Towards the end of last year, all the Programmes that Salem University has been running since 2009 fell into this category. The NUC sent their assessment teams in November last year (2011). They scrutinized seven Programmes with all their relevant documentations, inspected all relevant facilities, and interviewed both global staff and global leaders.
Everything we told the NUC, they went out there and saw for themselves. Integrity is a core value in Salem University, when we say something we believe we can stand by it. We stood for the truth, trust and honesty in our stance before the NUC, and they agreed with our claims.
This year (2012), we got the results. The assessed Programmes received 100 percent accreditation!!! This is a great and unique feat which makes us happy today. We achieved this by share hard work, integrity of hearts and the sacrificial support of our Proprietor, the University Chancellor, Archbishop Dr Sam Amaga.
