Think Tansian University - From The Office of Director of Public Relations
At Tansian University, independence is an attitude of mind. We aim to develop students who question the status quo and are entrepreneurial in their thinking. We have the academic freedom to pursue our own ideas, and we are committed to meeting the individual needs of students in order to produce alumni of distinction. Whenever the opportunity arises, we take the independent path.
Our campuses reflect our spirit of independence. The secluded grounds of our main campus at Umunya in Anambra State has a green oasis and undulated serene, offering an exclusive student experience, while our campus at Oba directly opposite the Oba International Airport is exquisite.
Tansian University is intimate enough to make students feel like a ‘home away from home’. With students on campus, our staff and students get to know each other by name, and students benefit from plenty of one-to-one contact with their tutors.
Our graduates go on to build successful careers in a range of industries, as well as becoming entrepreneurs, starting their own companies, or returning to ensure the continuing success of family businesses. A higher than average number of our graduates move into graduate-level jobs.
We are one of the Nigerian most respected private Universities and offer everything students need to fulfill their academic and personal potential including first class learning resources and facilities.
The Path of Hope
Rather than merely establishing a goal to be recognized for excellence, Tansian University identifies some specific areas in which the university should focus – and underscores them with well-crafted “imperatives” that clearly define the objectives. Attainment of those objectives, outlined in the imperatives, entails continued enhancement across a broad spectrum of clearly articulated acidic and related endeavours, with the envisioned “top 10” recognition being a welcome by-product.
Tansian University is now in its pedestal of “creating a culture of excellence.” Initiated in 1997 by Very Rev. Msgr. Prof. John Bosco Akam, it represents his diligent work and vision. The Father Founder/Chancellor devoted more than six years to examining various aspects of the university and study benchmark institutions before formally unveiling in 1999 the results of his study and making underlying recommendations.
The Father Founder/Chancellor has enthusiastically embraced Vision 2020, noting its prominently in his January 31, 2008 matriculation address and on numerous subsequent occasions. More than just noting it, however, he has put into action his resolve to achieve the aspirations reflected in Vision 2020 planning and articulation. He has elected to focus initially on four areas that are embedded in the original imperatives, plus one imperative:

PROPRIETOR: Sons of Blessed Iwene Tansi (Founder Very Rev Msgr Prof John Bosco Akam)
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. The founding father of the University is Very Rev Msgr Prof. John Bosco Akam (FCON).
Tansian University which was licensed on May 27th 2007, christened after a rare African first Nigerian to be beatified: Blessed Cyprian Michael Iwene Tansi, is determined to actualize its vision of being a dynamic institution with the noble philosophy of inculcating sound, high quality education, without compromising on morals. And since inception, the University has continued to offer relevant academic programmes designed to produce highly qualified graduates that will be acceptable locally and globally; young men and women imbued with love of universal truth for the benefit of mankind.
Tansian University products are, therefore, being equipped with the ability for critical and local analysis, effective language communication, numeric information and communication technology (ICT) skills. At the end of their studies, graduates from Tansian University are capable of exhibiting sound moral judgment befitting African culture and aesthetic values.
