Kind of gift items

There are numerous ways in which you can support the College in its mission.

  • Gifts of cash – Whether it is one-time or recurring, your financial aids will assist the College in pursuing its objectives.
  • Gifts of other resources – This could include assets items that could be put to credible use by the College, any of the Faculties, the Institute, or any of the Department within the College.

Why we need your assistance

In the past decade, there has been a substantial increase in the admission of students without commensurate increase in faculty personnel and facilities. Ideally, there is need for rapid expansion of all infrastructural facilities as well as massive recruitment of faculty staff to match the prevailing situation.

However, because of other competing national interests and paucity of funds, the challenge to the Medical School would be how to remain innovative in teaching and research, maximize available resources and still meet the need to supply a qualitative core of medical and dental workforce in sufficient numbers to meet the demands of the health sector.

How to give your gift

We recommend that you contact the Provost in advance to find out how you can assist the College. For further information about this, please contact:
