The National Universities Commission (NUC) says it has designed a blueprint to reposition private universities in the country.

The structure which spans 2019-2023 was disclosed by Executive Secretary of the Commission, Prof. Abubakar Rasheed, at the 3rd convocation ceremony of Elizade University, Ilara- Mokin, Ondo State.

He explained that the blueprint was produced following consultation with stakeholders including Parents, teaching and non-teaching staff and vice chancellors.

He said, “The development of the blueprint was thought on an extensive multi-stakeholder base and inputs were sought from students, parents, teaching and non-teaching, Vice-Chancellors and other stakeholders.’’

“Data were gathered to determine our rank and challenges faced in the system in this time, as well as to seek practicable and sustainable solutions to the challenges and the cost implication for the solution”.

“The Commission has also produced the board of corporate governance for private universities to guide the Proprietors, the Board of Trustees, Governing Council and management.

“The document clearly delineates the role of each level of governance structure to improve university governance in Nigeria”.
