BINGHAM University, Nassarawa State 2016/2017 Undergraduate & Postgraduate Admission Form Out


ABOUT BINGHAM UNIVERSITY:
Quality, Moral Tertiary Education In Nigeria
1. Preamble:

Bingham University, Karu was established by the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA)
following its formal licensing by the National Universities Commission (NUC) on 5
th
January,
2005. As the name implies, the University was named after one of the trio of pioneer Sudan
Interior Missionaries, Roland Victor Bingham whose vision along with those of other
founding fathers desired to produce committed Christians in our institutions, including the
University through which Christ-centred leaders would emerge. The founding fathers
intend to meet the soaring need for not only quality secular tertiary education but education
that recognises and integrates moral and spiritual values in the face of degenerating social
decadence in Nigerian University campuses.
2.  Vision, Mission, Core values and Goal:
The vision of Bingham University, Karu is totransform Nigeria into knowledge and skills –
driven society (Prov. 29:18).
Our mission for accomplishing the vision is to produce men and women who will catalyze
the revolution in self-reliance at all levels of a Godly society (1 Cor. 2:12-12).
The core values for Bingham University, Karu are Christ-centeredness, people-orientation,
excellence, purpose -driven life and adaptability to a changing world (Rom. 12:2-3).
Bingham University’s goal is to produce total men and women equipped to affect their
generation positively for Jesus Christ, serving humanity in ways that are glorifying to God
and dignifying to humanity (Prov. 29:18). Our motto is, ‘mission for service’.
3.  Commencement of Academic Programs: Temporary to Permanent Site:
Academic programs of Bingham University began in May 2006 at the Jos ECWA Theological
Seminary temporary site and moved to its present permanent site two years after, precisely
in March 2008 to Karu – Nasarawa State – Nigeria at the outskirts of Abuja, the Federal
Capital City. Indeed the feat of moving to the permanent site at such a brief moment of the
University’s commencement is uncommon in the history of Nigerian Universities where many
first and second generation government fundeduniversities in the country have not fully
moved to their permanent sites after decades of their existence. To the glory of God, the
virgin land of October 2006 with no single building has now been transformed into a beehive
of academic, professorial and Christian activities, courtesy of successive ECWA leadership,
members and friends of Bingham University, Karu.
4.  Academic Programs and Accreditation:

Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) combined with a post-UTME screening exercise.

on Mondays, Wednesdays, Sundays and most Saturdays. Students are also distributed into
mentorship groups under dedicated staff to provide sound Christian mentoring.
Students are also encouraged and supported to build prayer cells with their roommates. In
addition, the Chaplains assisted by some staff conduct room-to-room evangelism once in a
week to strengthen the faith of students as well as helping those who have not made their
faith to do so in the Lord Jesus Christ.
10. Students’ Discipline:
The University operates strict disciplinary tenets which are contained in the institution’s
student handbook. It prescribes behaviour and dress codes acceptable to the University and
the consequences of committing infractions against the regulations, In all, taken in
conjunction with the efforts of the Chaplaincy, the regulations help not only to improve
behaviour of students to become more disciplined but also to help them grow to be more

graduated three sets of students who excelled intheir various academic courses of studies.

not only done well academically, but have grown both physically and spiritually as children
of God who will continue to hold integrity as their watch word in the midst of a perverse
society. We expect them to shine for God intheir future endeavours by God’s grace.
The University also held its first convocation ceremony in February 2012 where certificates
were presented to the graduates. The occasionalso featured the presentation of honorary
degrees to some distinguished Nigerians whose exemplary godly life styles have been a
model to the younger generation.
13. Conclusion:
The evolution of private Universities in Nigeria including Bingham University, Karu has
contributed immensely to the country’s human capital development. The efforts of private
Universities, especially Christian faith-based Universities in providing quality education in the
face of over-whelming national challenges should attract the Federal and State Government
support through the provision of grants from the Education Tax Fund to motivate private
Universities to continue to complement government’s human capital development efforts in
the country.
