Centre for Research, Innovation and Discovery

A Citadel of Spirituality, Knowledge, Leadership and Mental Productivity


Research is central to the twin missions of Covenant University to offer solutions to society’s big problems and be a leading, global educational institution. These ambitions are intimately linked, and the innovations from them have benefited the country's health, economy, and political processes and make Covenant increasingly prominent.


The University's Centre for Research, Innovation, and Discovery leads in research that advances society, such as bioinformatics. At the same time, it is growing capacity in scholarship, community development, and industrial relevance.

The unique funding arrangements of the institution ensure its long-term commitment to the welfare of society. The University is near a self-sustainable status, from research grants and industry endowments. A good and recent instance is a $6-million grant that the University won from the World Bank for research on Applied Informatics and Communication.

The projects’ target is solving global food security problems, climate change, waste management, electronic governance, business, and poverty eradication. Although these are the “big picture” challenges, there is a local aspect to each issue, which provides relevance and impetus.
