The Vice Chancellor, Prof. Olanrewaju Fagbohun, SAN, expressed satisfaction at the University’s performance in the global ranking but added that there was still much to be done.

“Participating in that ranking is to put ourselves on our toes, to know where we need to improve. This is not the best we can do, but it’s a good start.

We must be targeting to be in the first 200 band by the time the next ranking will be done”, he enthused. He praised the Director, Directorate of Research Management and Innovation, Prof. Olumuyiwa Odusanya and his team for putting together the submission that earned LASU the ranking.

In another development, the Vice Chancellor has challenged members of Staff of the University to embrace the use of technology to deepen knowledge acquisition.

“There is need for us to constantly deepen our competencies. Covid-19 has changed the face of knowledge acquisition. You can’t be complacent with being knowledgeable in one field. The world today is such that you must be able to acquire knowledge in as many fields as possible.
