“Lagos State University is an amazing brand. LASU is a fantastic brand. Right now, everybody wants to associate with Lagos State University, simply, because there is Peace. LASU has always shown excellence, but, the challenges of the past denied the institution, even, TETFUND.”

These were the words of the Vice Chancellor, Professor Olanrewaju Fagbohun as he received the team of panellists that put together the “DREAM BIG, TAKE ACTION & CHANGE THE WORLD” career talk for LASU students in his office after the well-attended, thought provoking and insightful event on Wednesday, 8th June, 2017.

Speaking further, the LASU Numero uno stated that in the past, image of the University was a problem, but, the narrative has changed today to an institution blazing the trail, in the news for all the right reasons and on the path of glory. He added that the modest achievements were not his own, but, a collective responsibility by all, including the Governing Council, Senate, Management, Staff, Workers’ Unions, StudentsUnion and the entire Students.

“It is all about inclusive governance and robust engagement to deepen the frontiers of academic excellence as well as service delivery. We can disagree, to agree, but, must not allow it degenerate”, he stated. The Vice Chancellor referring to himself, said one man cannot do it all, adding that everybody, non-teaching, teaching staff and the students must close ranks and always work for the growth of the institution. He thanked the team and requested that the career talk must continue.
