Welcome Address

Congratulations on securing your place to study at the Faculty of Renewable Natural Resources of this great University. You are welcome to a unique faculty where you are now a member of one big family and a part of the friendliest community on campus.

The faculty has a highly motivating and favourable learning environment, with enduring research enterprise and unyielding commitment to grooming outstanding academic talents that can make impacts in their various fields of endeavour. Our indoor and field laboratories are attractive and appealing. Our training provides opportunities for our students to undertake professional work placements in their various disciplines in renewable natural resources. This puts classroom-based teaching in a real-life context.

The faculty is proud to welcome you into a community of scholars where classroom instruction is complemented by hands-on learning and an unwavering commitment to students’ success. We provide opportunities for our students to demonstrate their entrepreneurial skills by allowing them to use part of their time to do business in renewable natural resources to support their studies without losing focus of their academic excellence. This distinguishes our students from others.

Our faculty staff are highly experienced and committed to giving our students unrivalled learning opportunities that position them for success after graduation. The academic, technical, and administrative staff of the faculty work diligently to maintain the high academic standard and discipline of the University.

Our research impacts are real and demonstrated through our numerous collaborations with a wide range of stakeholders in renewable natural resources at local, regional and global levels. Our graduates are sought after by several organisations and employers of labour, which is a testimony to our unique excellent training programmes.

Students and others are welcome and are advised to visit or contact the Dean’s Office for any further inquiry, assistance, and information. I welcome you warmly to the Faculty of Renewable Natural Resources, University of Ibadan, the First and the Best.
