HISTORY OF KASU

Kaduna State University commonly known as KASU is a State University which was set up in Kaduna, Northern Nigeria, under the Kaduna State Law Number 3 declared on 21st May, 2004. The proclamation was an outcome of the need to help advance education in the educationally backward Northern States and the nation at large. 

Before the establishment of KASU, Kaduna State was noted to have enjoyed a high presence of Primary and Secondary education compared to any other northern state, but be that as it was, the quantity of young people going after advanced education in the state far surpasses the accessible spaces in the catchment colleges of the State. HR needs of the State in basic territories of advancement and development, for example, horticulture, industry, designing, medicine and law subsequently stayed unfulfilled causing disappointment among youngsters and ladies, their folks, expected managers and the general society in general.

This developing need, emerging from both the national pattern and the short supply of Institutions of higher learning capable of admitting all qualified candidates who were ready and willing to learn fueled the thoughts of setting up a State owned University in Kaduna State. 

In a positive attempt to solve the problems, the Kaduna State Government had to set up a Technical Committee whose assignment was to look into the circumstances in detail and evaluate if it was going to be possible and productive for the State Government to carry out its academic plan in the State. The Committee which was initiated on Friday, 24th January, 2003, presented its report on Monday, 12th May, 2003. In Continuation of this the Kaduna State University was set up on 21st May, 2004 with two campuses, one in Kaduna town and the other in Kafanchan. Academic work and exercises commenced in 2005/2006 academic session at Kaduna Campus with 3 Faculties, 17 Academic Departments, 19 Undergraduate Programs and a College of Basic Studies. 

At present, the University has 2 Colleges (College of Health Sciences & College of Basic and Remedial Studies), 2 Schools (School of Continuing Education & School of Post graduate Studies), a library that contains over 17,000 volume of books, 8 Faculties (Arts, Social Sciences, Management Sciences, Agriculture, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Sciences, Environmental Sciences & Education), 51 Academic Departments, 32 Undergraduate Programs and 54 Postgraduate Programs in the 2 Campuses. The University and majority of her departments have been accredited by the National Universities Commission (NUC) and she currently ranks 37 in the country.
