Spiritual Life on Campus
One of the core values of Ajayi Crowther University, as a faith-based Institution is Spirituality. The overall spiritual development of both the staff and students is directed by the Holy Spirit through the University Chaplain, in accordance with the precepts of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion).
The spiritual formation goals of the University are:
- To influence the Ajayi Crowther University community for a more vital relationship with God and with others.
- To develop and implement faith-building programmes that encourage students to mature in wisdom and character and motivate them to develop as leaders, who will be ambassadors of God’s grace in the world.
- To see our graduates having a transformational impact on culture and society through the acquisition of leadership qualities and skills
The Spiritual development goals are achieved through Chaplaincy, University Chapel and Church attendance. The Chaplaincy generates spiritual programmes designed to bring out of her graduates the Total Man.
