While aiming at increasing access to university education in Nigeria, Paul University, propelled by the experience of its founding fathers in educational management, character development, and teaching and learning, visualizes itself as “a producer of the best all round graduates in Nigeria, and an institution whose emphasis will be on genuine service”.


In pursuance of the foregoing vision, the mission of the university is to offer access to university education to talented youth, and involve them in the discovery, generation, dissemination, and application of high quality knowledge. This will equip them with self-reliance and enlightened service to the nation and mankind in a collegial atmosphere characterized by the fear of the Lord, academic freedom and critical enquiry.


It is with immense pleasure that I welcome our students, their parents, guardians as well as friends and all stakeholders to the Paul University website. We commend you all to the unflinching love of the Almighty God and the grace and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ, in Whom all things subsist.

Paul University, Awka is the brain-child of the Bishops of the five Ecclesiastical Provinces (currently comprising 55 Dioceses) of the Anglican Communion east of the Niger, whose vision to establish a novel University became a reality on November 3, 2009. It was on that date that the University received, from the Federal Government, the Provisional License to operate as a full-fledged private University. This was followed by an inaugural ceremony on November 30, 2009.
