"UI is an extraordinary University in Nigeria" - US ambassador

At a period the University of Ibadan is ranked as one of the most prestigious universities in the world, the United States of America's ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. Stuart Symington, has also described the institution as "an extraordinary University in Nigeria."

Mr. Symington made this assertion when he paid a courtesy call on the vice-chancellor, Prof. Abel Idowu Olayinka in his office, on Monday, 16 June, 2017.

Bearing in mind the excellent academic pedigree of the institution, the envoy said there are many strategic ways the University can collaborate with his country for Nigeria's development in a statement by the University's Director of Public Communication, Mr. Olatunji Oladejo.

Mr. Symington, who was accompanied on the visit by his son, expressed his willingness to deliver a public lecture for selected staff and students on capacity building and national development.

Responding,  the vice-chancellor, Prof. Abel Idowu Olayinka said the University is committed to training its students in such areas as critical thinking, creativity and innovation, entrepreneurial skills and effective relationship with people of other cultural background in order to effectively function in any conceivable situation.

The VC further stated that the university plays a vital role on character formation of students during their learning engagements, stressing that "part of the mission of the University is to produce graduates who are worthy in character and sound judgement."
