established in 2016 to lead in activities towards harnessing various expertise and capital resources
to grow viable ventures and projects that would accrue to financial dividends for the University
College. It nurtures long term mutually beneficial relationships with its stakeholders including
local and international organizations and communities to enhance processes of social transformation.

of business partnerships.

spiritual needs of students and staff and to create and maintain an environment that promotes their
spiritual growth cum Christian values. The unit seeks to address difficulties of its clientele and aid
