Welcome to Ekiti State University, Faculty of Education; a great Faculty that serves as bedrock to all other Faculties, a Faculty with pragmatic philosophy of building a unified and strong nation through the training of quality teachers that are loyal, faithful, morally balanced, honest, dedicated, and committed to the course of academic integrity and professional excellence. The Faculty is also responsible for promoting research in Education.

The Faculty presently comprises nine departments housed in two separate buildings, the Old Faculty of Education complex and the new complex, where the offices of the Dean and Sub-Dean, Heads of Department, Academic Staff, Faculty board room, Seminar rooms and the Micro-teaching laboratory are located.
We have about 117 full time academic staff with 36 Professors, 12 Readers, 21 Senior Lecturers, 24 Lecturer I, 7 Lecturer II,11 Assistant Lecturers and 5Graduate Assistants.  Our students comprise over 30% of the entire undergraduate population and over 40% of the graduate population. We have three Masters-level programmes (M.Ed., M.Sc. (Ed.), and M.Phil.) and the Doctor of Philosophy degree programme in all the departments, taught by a first-rate Faculty and supported by a fine crop of non-teaching staff.

A new approach in building up our academic unit is nurturing relationships with our alumni, employers, friends in the community and other important external stakeholders.  We will continue to keep you informed about what’s going on in our Faculty, but we need your ideas and support.
As we welcome you back on campus, please remember that the whole world is engaged in the ‘battle against COVID 19 pandemic. It is therefore mandatory that we all abide with the specified COVID 19 protocol, involving frequent hand washing, application of alcohol-based sanitizer, wearing of face/nose mask and social distancing (at least two meters apart).
My doors are open and I am available to attend to you in case you need clarification on issues about the Faculty.  My office is the Dean’s Office, Room 01, new Faculty of Education Building complex.  I appreciate God’s grace to lead the Faculty at this time and I am excited about what we have to offer and about the many opportunities that await us in training our students, developing our Faculty and serving the community.  Thank you for your interest and support.
