Federal University Gusau, Zamfara State

Vice Chancellor’s Welcome Note

On behalf of the University Governing Council, Management, Senate, Staff and Students, I wish to warmly welcome you all to the Federal University Gusau (FUGUS).

The establishment of this University in 2013 is an indication of the country’s commitment to education and this served as a great milestone to education and its development in Zamfara State and the country at large. Zamfara State was before the establishment of this University, one of the States that had no University whether Private, State or Federal; and that has seriously affected educational development in the state.

21st century University is very difficult to establish in a developing country but that is our target in the Federal University Gusau. Thus, we are involved in building in-process quality in our teaching and practicals to produce highly competitive graduates who will not depend on government’s jobs. We are also leveraging on ICT to put up a good system which responds to everybody’s needs.

The University currently has three Faculties; Faculty of Humanities and Education Faculty of Management and Social Science, Faculty of Science, and offers seventeen (17) courses. It is also part of our plan to very soon introduce three other Faculties of Agriculture, Engineering and Pharmacy to cater for the immediate needs of Zamfara State, as the state is naturally endowed with mineral resources and has a long established history of Agriculture.
God bless Federal University Gusau, God bless Zamfara State and God bless Federal Republic of Nigeria.
