FOCUS & MOTTO
Projecting the focus and motto of the institution, Bishop David Oyedepo at the inauguration of the Advisory Council to the University in February 2000 inter alia stated: "Focus is the fountain of excellence. Focus enhances creativity and boosts ingenuity. Whatever you stay on with commitment, you are bound to stand out there ultimately".
The focus of the university is to produce men and women who will change their generations through unparalleled ingenuity, creativity and purposeful living and great capacity to face and manage challenges.
An excerpt from the profound founding philosophy of CU as crafted by Dr. Oyedepo may suffice to catch a glimpse of the envisioned revolutionary assignment that lies ahead of CU. According to the Chancellor, CU is poised to be:
* A departure from form to skill,
* A departure from knowledge to empowerment,
* A departure from figures to future-building,
* A departure from legalism to realism,
* A departure from points to facts, and
* A departure from mathematics to life-matics.
The Logo of Covenant University consists of the Letters CU (abbreviations for Covenant University) inscribed over a satellite map of the world taken from outer space. On top of this map is inscribed the words "Covenant University", while underneath on a purple background that signifies royalty is the motto: "Promoting Mental Productivity".
The positioning of the letters CU over Africa indicates that the message of liberation for which the University stands is originating and diffusing from Africa to the rest of the world. The open book signifies knowledge and academic excellence. The dripping red dots represent the blood covenant that connects members of the University to Christ.
