The Registry of the University is vested with the responsibility of coordinating various departments/units of the University to ensure efficiency and optimal performance. The Registry is headed by the Registrar who is the Chief Administrator of the University and statutorily the Secretary to Council, Senate, Congregation and Convocation.The Registrar reports to the Vice-Chancellor on the day-to-day administration of the University. Over the years, the growing complexities in the administration of the University has seen the Registry metamorphose from a small Unit in a one-room accommodation in the then Ministry of Education in 1962 to a more robust organ with quite a number of key departments/units. While this development is largely a product of thorough institutional framework, the idiosyncratic values of successive registrars have also helped in shaping the Registry.
The Registry has come of age, as it has recorded milestone achievements since inception. It is made up of well-structured and functional departments/units as component parts with keyresponsibilities. To ensure efficiency, these units/departments are headed by seasoned administrators who are responsible to the Registrar. Importantly, the Registrar coordinates the activities of all administrative staff in the University.
The Registry’s vision as articulated by the Registrar, Mr. Ismaila Oladejo Azeez is “to be part of a dynamic and resourceful Management, leading a team of well-educated administrators who are highly motivated and endowed with integrity, honesty and transparency”.
