VC Welcome Message
We welcome you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We are pleased to introduce Bowen University of the Nigerian Baptist Convention, Iwo, Osun State, Nigeria, to you and hope that what you learn as you browse through our web site will give you insights into the many advantages the University has to offer.
Bowen University is a significant landmark in the academic heritage of its proprietor, the Nigerian Baptist Convention. Students who attend Bowen University find it to be a place where they can grow academically, morally and spiritually, in a Christian environment. Bowen University is a community where educators, staff and students live and work in an atmosphere of mutual commitment in the richness of the Baptist tradition. Our campus is characterized by academic and administrative staff who care about individuals and devote time to getting to know students.
Bowen’s uniqueness is the strong emphasis it places on Godliness as well as academic excellence, coupled with its profound stress on the importance of service to others as a meaningful way to develop values that will enrich the world. Indeed, whether your interest lies in business, science, or the humanities, you will find at Bowen, a comprehensive center of learning – technologically on the cutting edge, internationally connected in terms of curriculum, and moving toward a diversity that reflects the realities of our world.
The beauty of our campus makes it an ideal atmosphere for learning, whether in the classroom, through academic and laboratory exercises, or through special projects, tutorials and assignments. A full complement of extra-curricular activities allows our entire students or student body to enjoy special interests, share in the excitement of student life and develop leadership skills that reflect individual competence.
I have had the pleasure of being involved in higher education for more than 30 years but I can think of no greater challenge than being a part of the Bowen experience, as it prepares credible graduates to be leaders that are productive, effective, honest, focused, and God fearing.
