We don’t just give students the education and experiences that set them up for success in a career, we help them succeed in their career—to discover a field they’re passionate about and dare to lead it.
Fountain University was granted an operational license as a Private University on May 17, 2007, by the Federal Government on the recommendations of the National Universities Commission. Following this achievement, a Strategic implementation Committee was set up to serve as “in loco Council” to actualize the birth of the University. This Committee worked tirelessly to put in place the necessary facilities for the University to take off.
The desire of the Nasrul-Lahi-Il-Fatih Society (NASFAT) to establish a University was borne out of its educational policy and plan enunciated at its strategic Retreat held at Akodo, Lagos, in the year 2000. From this humble beginning, the Society started a systematic process which led to the hosting of an academic summit of 30 Distinguished Academic Personalities from where an 18-person University Planning Committee emerged in January 2004.
