About The University

Tansian University products are, therefore being equipped with the ability for critical and local analysis, effective language communication, numeric and information communication technology (ICT) skills. At the end of their studies, graduates of Tansian University are capable of exhibiting sound moral judgment befitting African culture and aesthetic values.
Quite unlike most tertiary institutions, Tansian University was not born out of a desire to make name and acquire material wealth, but to fulfill an innate desire to develop youths and empower them for the challenges of a changing world. To achieve this, the Father-Founder Very Rev. Msgr Prof. John Bosco Akam started the development process from kindergarten, primary to secondary schools education as well as the destitute and physically challenged institutions which explain why he is popularly known as Father of Enlighten and Legend of Education. To extend the scope of youths, Prof Akam founded Tansian University, named after a rare African First Nigeria to be beatified – Blessed Cyprain Michael Iwene Tansi.
In Tansian University, you will not only receive a blueprint for saving the world, your world and our country, Nigeria, but you will be given some fundamental principles, which if followed with confidence, will help you be a ‘success story’ to your generation.
Making a difference is the major thrust of the philosophy of Tansian University. That is the dream of the Father Founder and Chancellor of the University – to breed new ideas, fresh solutions and new perspectives.
