The Kwara State University’s Office of Advancement and Development (OAD) is a part of the University’s overall strategy to strengthen innovative approaches to partnership building and resource mobilisation in support of the University’s vision of being a world-class university and mission of expanding the frontiers. of knowledge as the University for Community development.
As part of the Vice Chancellor’s Office, OAD seeks to mobilise non traditional support to the University by developing active partnerships with individuals, private foundations, organisations, and philanthropists who share KWASU’s long-term interests in order to increase the margin of excellence of its educational and Community outreach programs. OAD is responsible for the planning and coordination of many resource mobilisation activities on behalf of the University and its units. It is also responsible for developing publications for development functions and fund raising activities. OAD therefore serves as a bridge between the University and target partner organisations with the aim of strengthening cooperative relationships. This cooperation will enhance KWASU’s academic, research and community service/outreach missions.
