Welcome Address

Greetings from the Faculty of Education, Federal University of Lafia.  Though young, we have graduated our first set of student in LIS, VTE and Special Needs. We are committed to improving the quality of teachers, especially in our immediate constituency which is Middle Belt Nigeria so that the quality of candidates we admit into our higher institutions will also be better. The faculty (academic staff) are teachers who are committed and dedicated to teaching, research, and engagements with the community. The students outlook reflects our love for diversity and inclusiveness. For us “No one should be left behind”. We believe that through education, sustainable development can be achieved
