Mission and Vision
I welcome you most warmly to the School of Leadership Development (SLDV) in the College of Leadership Development Studies (CLDS).
The School was established at the beginning of the 20014/2015 academic session as one of the two Schools in the new College of Leadership Development Studies.
The School is made up of two Departments: a) Department of Languages and General Studies; and b) Department of Leadership Studies. The Department of Languages and General Studies offers the B. A (Hons) English Programme. The duration of the Programme is four (4) years (8 semesters). The Department of Leadership Studies runs two Programmes: a) the Certificate Programme in Leadership Development (CLD), which has a duration of two (2) semesters; and b) the Diploma Programme in Leadership Development, with a duration of two (2) academic sessions (four (4) semesters).
The Certificate Programme is meant for the Graduating Class, while the Diploma Programme is for 200Level students on the four-year Programmes of Covenant University, on the one hand, and 300Level students on the five-year Programmes of the University, on the other.
Since Leadership is crucial in human existence, the two Departments in the School of Leadership Development expose their students to every aspect of Leadership Studies in addition to courses in English Language and Literature-in-English so that they can be rounded graduates who are determined to lead by example. To this end, the Departments in the School prepare the students for leadership roles wherever they find themselves, locally and globally. They are equipped to be bold and command respect wherever they go.
In line with Covenant University’s Vision of raising a new generation of leaders, the Vision of the School of Leadership Development is to be a World-Class School of Leadership committed to producing a new breed of young people who will stand out by virtue of their having been imparted with sound Leadership qualities.
Our Mission in the School is to provide a fulfilling academic experience through a Leadership Development-based curriculum designed to produce confident young men and women versed in the knowledge of who they are, and who are able and ready to impact their society by virtue of their integrity, self-discipline, productive attitude and fear of God.
