Ajayi Crowther University (ACU)

Ajayi Crowther University also known as ACU is a private university located in Oyo, Oyo State, Nigeria

The Ajayi Crowther University, Oyo was established by the Supra Diocesan Board (West) of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), has its origins in the defunct CMS training institution, Abeokuta and the defunct St. Andrews College, Oyo.

The University started as CMS Training Institution in Abeokuta in 1853 from where it was relocated to Lagos (1868 to 1896). In March 1896, it was transplanted to Oyo retrospectively in 1920.


The Vision of Ajayi Crowther University is to be a top-class institution in the pursuit of knowledge and scholarship through teaching, learning, research and exemplary service to humanity.


  • Provide admission to students and employment to staff without discrimination on the basis of sex, race, ethnicity and disability, religious and political persuasions.
  • Produce graduates who are imbued with fear of God and a sense of service to humanity and who are endowed with a well-rounded education to enable them to operate successfully in the Nigerian environment, both as private entrepreneurs and as top-flight workers in the private and public sectors of the nation’s economy.
  • Provide a living and learning environment which is influenced by Christian ethics and principles.

Our Vision and Mission, as a Christian University, are founded on the Protestant ethics of hard work, justice, truth and honour and these virtues are being reflected in the teaching culture at the University.
