Students' Affairs


Most tertiary institutions are as concerned with the formal aspects as much as they are with the informal. This explains why the Ignatius Ajuru University of Education awards certificates not just on the basis of excellent learning of what is contained in the curricular, but also on significant extra curricula domain which has to do with character, thus the magic words are worthy in Character and Learning boldly written on the certificates issued to graduates of most tertiary institutions.

Incidentally, most aspects of the informal education and the extra-curricular activities of students fall on the laps of the Student Affairs Department, usually charged with or expected to perform regular functions.   This department provides direction, guidance and encouragement on extra-curricular activities and services, including all aspects of life in halls of residence. Students also receive valuable assistance from this Unit on different matters including:

  • Orientation for Fresh Students
  • Hostel Accommodation allocation
  • Hostel Services and Management
  • Students Associations Registration
  • Student Union Government Elections
  • Student Union Government Elections –Executive, Parliament & Hall Governors
  • Counseling and Career Services
  • Special services for Students with Special Needs
  • Regulations and protection of students rights
  • Computerization of Students’ Records
  • Issuance of Clearance to graduating Students
  • Audio Visual Services
  • Assisting Students in Deferment/Withdrawal Processes
  • Secretarial services
  • Students disciplinary matters and
  • Security of Life and Property 

The Dean of students who steers the affairs of the department becomes number one student who forms a link between the university administration and students’ Union Government.

In order to maintain peace and encourage extra-curricular development outside classrooms experience, students are permitted to belong to any registered associations/clubs approved by the university administration/Dean of Student on meeting the prescribed requirements.


Although the primary duty of providing security to life and property of students and staff alike within the University premises is that of the Security Department, there is an extension of this responsibility by the Dean, Students Affairs of catering to a students’ welfare.

Most enquiries as to the location of a student are often directed to the department, and then redirected from there to the Security Department. Furthermore, the Chief Security Officer’s brief is limited to the physical presence of a student within the four walls of the institution, while the Student Affairs’ Unit concerns extend beyond social issues among others.
