Office of Research and Development

Welcome to ORD

The Office of Research and Development (ORD is the institutional framework of the University that was established to facilitate and coordinate knowledge generation, knowledge transfer and knowledge application. It harnesses the intellectual and technological assets within the University and use them to improve the overall socio-economic and industrial advancement of Ekiti State in particular and Nigeria in general.

As a Directorate we provide strategic vision and direction for research and development in the University. We also help in formulating research policies for the University amongst so many objectives.

The Office of Research and Development (ORD) superintends over the Institutional Based Research Grants (IBR Grants) and Academic Manuscripts Development Projects, all sponsored by Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund), furthermore ORD is also responsible for Research Ethical Clearance/ Certification.

The ORD is also saddled with the conduction of biennial EKSU International conference and Research Fair. We also go into partnership with other Research Institutes.

The Office of Research and Development houses two University Journals, Journal of Science and Technology (EJST) and Nigerian Inquiry In The Humanities (NIITH). It is my pleasure to inform you that publishing in the two aforementioned journals is free, courtesy TETFund. My doors are opened and I am available to attend to you in case you need clarification on issues about the Directorate.

ORD building is just behind the New Auditorium. There are so many opportunities in the Directorate. I will be looking forward to receiving you. Thank you for your interest.
