About Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba (AAUA):
AAUA is a university that is owned and run by the state government and was first established in March 1982. By then it was called Obafemi Awolowo University. It was located in Ado-Ekiti and founded by the government of the old Ondo State via the head of government then, late Chief Michael Adekunle Ajasin. Three years after its establishment, Navy Commodore Michael Bamidele Otiko, who was head of the military government that succeeded Chief Adekunle’s regime, renamed the university and called it Ondo State University.
In 1999, after a new state was created from the old Ondo state in 1996, the institution had to be moved to its present location, Akungba. This relocation was backed by a bill that was signed into law by Chief Adebayo Adefarati, the then governor of the state.
In 2004, another bill was signed into law by Adefarati, and this time it was the bill that would back the changing of the name of the school as authorities wanted to use it as a means to immortalize the late governor, Chief M. A. Ajasin. That was how the school came to be known as Adekunle Ajasin University.
The institution offers undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes and has 6 (six) faculties:
- Faculty of Arts
- Faculty of Education
- Faculty of Law Departments
- Faculty of Science
- Faculty of Social and Management Sciences
- Faculty of Agriculture Departments
