Covenant University's Commitment to

Making a Difference

CU-CDIIC exists to leverage Covenant University's vision, values, and expertise to making a difference locally in alignment with the SDGs


CU-CDIIC represents the third critical arm of the University after Teaching and Research. Through CU-CDIIC, we’re making an impact on the social and economic growth of local organizations and under-served communities for sustainable community development in collaboration with key local partners and stakeholders.

All CDIIC projects both within and outside the University are targeted at the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) of the United Nations.


Through our flagship programs and events across our thematic areas, we have impacted our immediate communities in Ado-Odo/Ota LGA of Ogun State Nigeria and environs through the provision of free medical screening & medications, counseling, donation of boreholes, transformers, generator set, food items, provisions, medical consumables, books, library resources, laboratory equipment, renovation of schools and medical centers, scholarships to indigent persons especially women and children of targeted communities.

“Only those who live for others become leaders. You will never be remembered for what you have but for what you add.”

Dr. David O. Oyedepo | Chancellor, Covenant University

For us in Covenant University, it is about giving back to society as we carry out research, embark on quality teaching, we also give back to society in different ways. Covenant University is passionate about the welfare of members of our society; we are so glad we have this platform to touch lives, wipe away tears and to put smiles on the faces of people.
