Welcome to CUCERD
In a conscious move to create a Centre for Excellence to foster basic and applied research which is particularly focused on community-related problems, and projects that can be translated to practice and policy to improve human welfare issues, as well as making Covenant University to become a Research University, the Covenant University Centre for Research and Development (CUCERD) was formally commissioned in October 2008. With the formal establishment of the Covenant University Centre for Research and Development (CUCERD), the University Research Policy, Processes and Funding are now streamlined and administered by the Centre.
The Centre has since been handling the processing and screening of all staff requests and needs for research and academic development, including those pertaining to participation at academic Conferences and Workshops to enhance their research and academic capability and performance.
Guided by Covenant University’s commitment to the highest standards of excellence in support of research and learning, and since the effective take-off of the Covenant University Centre for Research and Development (CUCERD), CUCERD’s aims to promote the stewardship necessary to sustain and strengthen the University’s capabilities and to promote their use for the betterment of the society has been pursued with the required determined efforts.
The modalities for processing University research activities entailing ethical issues have now been put in place by CUCERD.
The establishment of a CUCERD Central Research Equipment Workshop has been initiated and put in place, where preliminary/exploratory research projects here and elsewhere can be readily developed and carried out.
In furtherance of the provision in CUCERD’s Blueprint under “Linkages and Collaboration”, CUCERD is embarking on a process of partnering with industries, private and public organizations by requesting for Research projects to them and that are expected to be mutually beneficial to them, our University and the nation.
