Educational accreditation is a type of quality assurance process under which services and operations of educational institutions or programms are evaluated by an external body to determine if applicable standards are met. Accredited status and approval is granted by the commission if seen qualified. For Benson Idahosa University, another opportunity has come for the University to play host to her regulators.
Welcoming members of the National Universities Commission (NUC) to Benson Idahosa University the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Ernest B. Izevbigie noted that the institution has students from 33 out of the 36 States of the Country, adding that the University is driven by its seven core values amongst which are ownership mentality, team work, people matter, academic excellence with godliness.
Speaking further he said the University has thirteen programmes across the various faculties up for accreditation with the exception of Law, saying that upon its accreditation and license in 2002, Benson Idahosa University has continued to improve on its facilities. Prof. Izevbigie therefore wished the NUC accreditation team a glorious stay in Benson Idahosa University.
Expressing their appreciation to the Management of Benson Idahosa University for the warm welcome the NUC team explained that the National Universities Commission is not set up to witch hunt any institution but rather, to insist on quality assurance.
