    Caleb University Among Top 20 in Latest Ranking – VC


    The Vice-Chancellor, Caleb University, Imota in Lagos, Prof. Nosa Owens-Ibie, says the institution has secured a spot among top universities across the globe with its latest ranking.

    Owens-Ibie said this in a statement by the Media and Information Officer of the university, Mr Olawale Adekoye, issued to newsmen on Friday in Lagos.

    The vice-chancellor explained that the development was coming on the heels of the recent award to the institution as the ‘Best Private University’ in Nigeria in 2024 by the Times Higher Education (THE).

    “It is indeed a testament to the university’s unwavering commitment to academic excellence, innovative research and student success.

    “Caleb University Imota in Lagos has achieved an outstanding milestone for being ranked 18th best university, out of the total 272 public and private universities in Nigeria, according to the 2024 World University ranking by the respected Times Higher Education (THE).

    “This unprecedented leap has secured a spot for the institution among the world’s top universities in which elite ones from 152 countries and regions were evaluated for the much anticipated 2024 ranking.

    “For us to be winning national and international recognitions in quick succession is proof that we remain a showcase of the best and brightest. The future belongs to Caleb University,” he said.

    The professor of Communication, Media and Development said that the ranking recognised the institution’s dedication to the Sustainable Development Goals, providing a world-class education, fostering a culture of innovation and producing talented graduates, who made positive impact globally.

    In his contribution, Prof. Olalekan Asikhia, Deputy Vice-Chancellor in charge of Research, Innovation, Strategy and Administration (RISA) of the institution stated that when in 2021, the university was ranked 66th in Nigeria, the management went to the drawing board.

    According to him, management held meetings and brainstormed and the target then was to put the institution to the top 30 by the year 2024.

    “However, the top 20 placement in 2024 came as an amazingly pleasant surprise, all as a result of collective acceleration efforts.

    “We have surpassed our strategic plan projection of top 30 by 2024. This is a great feat in all its ramifications, being our first global ranking,” Asikhia said.

    Recall that THE is a topmost global university ranking body, that assesses institutions by identifying and celebrating universities that excel across multiple United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

    The organ also considers institutions that stand out in individual areas and demonstrate comprehensive excellence in contributing to global sustainable drives.

    It also showcases commitments to addressing the world’s most pressing challenges, including environmental sustainability, social inclusion, economic growth and partnerships as well as critical role of academia in driving sustainable change, amongst others.
