More than four years ago, members of LASU Community collectively agreed to pursue a vision and we began the hard work of rewriting the story of our university.
In those four years, from our classrooms to our admnistrative offices, science laboratories and sports centre, we watched how LASU staff and students defied impossible odds to blaze the frontiers of excellence and innovations in different areas.
In recent months, academics from the Lagos State University have won research grants worth millions of dollars to pursue discoveries and create products that will greatly add value to mankind.
Despite the incredible progress we have made, we strongly believe that our best days are still way ahead of us. We acknowledge the challenges our university currently faces while trying to compete for impact and relevance in the global educational landscape.
This explains why our sleeves must remain rolled up and our thinking cap kept alive to its responsibility. We have more work to do. Improving on our infrastructures and resilience plan.
Attracting more world class research opportunities and leading initiatives that will make us more globally competitive. Ensuring that our university remains worthy of being called home – a community where peace, unity, equality, progress and kindness are non-negotiable ideals. Our work is not done yet!
Even as we look forward to the limitless possibilities the future could bring to our shores, we must celebrate ourselves and relish this moment of fulfillment and gratitude.
Dear members of LASU Community, this is our victory. This is for each and every one of us whose hard work, patience and commitment have propelled us this far.
Our 2021 Times Higher Education World University Ranking shows our vision and efforts over the past four and a half years have not been in vain. We have walked the talk and the best is yet to come!
To members of the public, we thank you for your support and we will continue to strive not to disappoint you.
