MESSAGE FROM THE PRO CHANCELLOR
University Education dates back to many centuries ago when the pioneer Institutions were established in Europe. Since then University and Tertiary levels of education and training have spread to various parts of the world. This knowledge-driven attainments have however varied from continent to continent, with Africa seriously lagging behind, with all its attendant adverse effects to the development of the continent.
Against this rather disturbing background, the establishment of Hope University of Science and Technology by the visionary and energetic Chancellor, Nwankwo A. F., in a place such as Cotonou with serious shortage of University institutions stands to be most highly commended. For this giant academic stride to succeed, a sound Governing Council that is accountable to the Chancellor, must first and foremost be put in place.
