The focal point of the logo is the open book. The sun stands for light, life and energy. The palm frond, a dominant foliage of the Nigerian rainforest belt, used for celebrations in the Christian tradition, symbolizes freshness and a new beginning. The wheel embodies the unending and unbroken circle of knowledge informed by Godliness, with the Baptist steering humanity along the path of knowledge.
The vision of the University is to be one of the foremost institutions for producing first rate graduates in science, technology and the humanities, who combine godliness and academic excellence with a strong sense of ethical responsibility, towards the development of the society at large.
The mission is to provide high quality, morally sound and socially relevant education, in the most cost-effective manner, to all its students, irrespective of gender, race, colour, ethnicity or religion. The University will develop, promote and be run as a unique Christian institution with the following distinctive features:
- Unquestionable Christian morality
- Vocational and apprenticeship orientation towards the full employment of its products and
- A work-study programme of activities to instill work ethics and self-reliance in students.
The University currently runs three Faculties, namely
- Science and Science Education
- Social and Management Sciences
However there is a long-term plan to establish other Faculties including Medical, Engineering and Environmental Sciences.
By University policy, all students are resident on campus and are therefore adequately housed.
