The Lagos State University (LASU) has been named as a Centre of Excellence for innovative and transformative Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Education by the World Bank, among other 16 universities across Nigeria.

The Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof. Olanrewaju Fagbohun made the disclosure at the weekend during the maiden edition of the Long Service Award for teaching and non-teaching staffs who had served the university for 20 years and above.

There were a total of 543 staff members of the university received the award.

Fagbohun said the Africa Centre of Excellence (ACE) 3 project is aimed at supporting more policy harmonization initiatives in higher education across the African region.

He said that LASU would get a minimum of seven million dollars as a Centre for the project, which is renewable after four years following impressive output and performance.

”We were chosen from about 154 Universities that applied for the centre, 17 from Nigerian universities, and after several rounds of assessment and screening, we were selected as the only state university in the round.

“We are going to be attracting foreign students and foreign faculties, so we cannot afford to go on strike or allow any crisis.”
