Administrative Frame Work

The University Act of 1983 is the operating basis for the actualisation of the re-born  NOUN. The Act provides, amongst others, that the  President of the  Federal Republic of Nigeria is the  Visitor to  the university. This is similar to the custom in the conventional universities in the country. In addition, there is a Council headed by the Pro-Chancellor, whose members are constituted by the Visitor through the Honourable Minister of Education. Currently, the Council of NOUN is made up of 15 appointed members apart from the internal  members of  the university  and representatives of  designated agencies  of government. The academic activities of the university are run through the Senate which has the  Vice-Chancellor as its Chairman and all Professors and Programme Leaders as members. The administrative machinery of the university is enhanced through directorates and units which at the moment are:
