Prof. Celestine A. Ntuen, FIIE   Premiere Vice-Chancellor


On March 5, 2015, National Universities Commission (NUC) granted a licence to Ritman University to operate as number 58 private university in Nigeria. It is with pride, as the Premiere Vice Chancellor of Ritman University (RU) that I welcome our future students and their parents.

RU’s motto, “Knowledge for Development,” speaks for the philosophy and the expected outcomes of the students who will graduate from RU. In 1796 Edward Jenner developed a method to infect people with the more benign virus so as to not catch the smallpox. The birth of “a good” Virus was in fact a serendipity.

We call this Vaccination today, and millions of lives have been saved by “weak” viruses. Inspired by this spirit of discovery, RU defines as her mission “To be the instrument for production of men and women that shall transform Nigeria to become the agents of positive change, wherever they find themselves.” We shall do so through interdisciplinary programmes and activities designed to impart valuable information to our students, who in tum will create impactful, verifiable, and measurable knowledge to solving our many societal problems.

As is the case of a good virus, students who graduate from RU, and in general, any other persons who walk the ground of RU, should be prepared to be infected with and by knowledge of intellectual and economic pedigrees with the ultimate experiences and insatiable tastes to be, entrepreneurs, leaders, and innovators. As “charity begins at home,” RU prides herself as the African Entrepreneurial University where interdisciplinary knowledge converge to create tangible and intangible (intellectual) products.

At RU, we seek to recruit students who are ready to challenge themselves and willing to solve hard societal problems, either individually and/or as a team. With RUs center of academic excellence and entrepreneurship, our students will have the opportunity to not only be infected with intellectual prowess through diverse use of teaching and learning tools, but will receive intellectual inoculations to boost their yet to be developed entrepreneurship capacities.

As we take off with all scholarship and research activities at Ritman University, we know we are taking off with excellent students and proud parents on board. Fasten your seat belt as we take­ off because we are a comprehensive liberal art university that you have every reason to be proud. At Ritman University, we are COMMUNITY ENGAGED & ENTREPRENEURIAL UNIVERSITY. Join us to engage, learn, and discover solutions to our daunting societal problems. Welcome aboard!’!
