In consonance with the Federal Government's philosophy and policy directions on tertiary education in Nigeria, as well as the special mandate of Salem University, the University would lay emphasis on empowerment, self-reliance and entrepreneurship development.
It is also recognized that the solutions to increasingly complex societal problems will require the acquisition of knowledge from a wide spectrum of academic disciplines. The programmes of the University, therefore, seek to achieve a balance between the intellectual acquisition of knowledge and the practical use of such knowledge via responsible roles in society to provide social impact.
The training of the students shall foster the appreciation and creation of a solution to the problems of the environment. As a means of achieving this, a major requirement of the programmes of the University, shall be student involvement in relevant intellectual and practical work experiences wherever possible.
Central concern of the University is to develop people who will value human lives. In its programmes, it shall inculcate a high sense of self-reliance, self confidence and integrity in its students.
In effect, Salem University philosophy is to empower and transform her students to be spiritually alive, intellectually alert, physically disciplined and socially adapted to enable commitment to service for self reliance. This the University will do by giving students the opportunities for developing cognitive and entrepreneurial skills that will enable them to function effectively in the society in which they find themselves, within the limit of their capacity.
Salem University educational system is geared towards self-realization, better human relationships among all categories of people, and national and global unity as well as social, cultural, economic, political, scientific and technological progress.
