— Eagles Reporters
Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko, Ondo State, (AAUA) emerges the Best State University in Nigeria according to the latest Webometric Ranking of World Universities released on the 31st of July, 2019. This feat places AAUA above several older universities in the country going by its positions in the ranking.
The University has been ranked the Best State University in Nigeria, No. 9 Best University in Nigeria, No. 81 among its counterparts in Africa and 3048 out of over 28,000 institutions ranked in the world.
It will be recalled that, before now, the University has been independently rated as the Best State University in Nigeria by the United States (US) Transparency International Standards (USTIS) in April 2014 and the National University Commission (NUC) voted it ‘the Best State University in 2005 in terms of the quality of academic staff.
The current webometric ranking further corroborates the merit of the University’s status as a 21st Century University, properly called!
As AAUA clocks 20 in November, 2019, the ranking has demonstrated again the eagerness of this relatively young University to develop and take its position among the comity of world best celebrated universities in terms of academic excellence, internationalization and global impact.
This laudable achievement is accomplished under the dynamic leadership of the Vice Chancellor,
Prof. Amos Igbekele Ajibefun, whose vision has been to take AAUA to higher heights. For him and the entire University community, it is a mission accomplished.
