Rabo said the university has partnered with diverse organizations outside Taraba to ensure a deep learning experience for its students.

According to him, the institution was committed to generating knowledge for research and development, and would continue to create visibility for the university and its academic staff across the world.

He said, “We are determined to transform our institution into a place of choice for teaching, learning, research and community service.

“As a university, we recognise the importance of linkages and partnerships towards deepening the experience of the students and enhancing quality higher education.

“To this end, we have developed partnerships with diverse organisations across the globe for the good of the university and the students.

“The federal government should support our ambitious drive for Nigeria’s development. Already we have partnered with Innoson Motors in Nnewi in Anambra state and we are developing partnerships with a number of institutions to fast track development and research”.
