Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo, the senior pastor of Kingsway International Christian Church (KICC), has completed his billion naira KICC University situated at Ode Omu, Osun state.
Part of the requirements for the granting of a license for a university by the National University Commission of Nigeria is that at least 250 acres of land be provided for a university campus but the KICC University sits atop over 500 acres.
The university which would be structured around six faculties and 22 mainstream departments, has the Schools of Medical Science and Pharmacy in the College of Medical Sciences as well as the Faculty of Law which are to run faculty/school-based degree programmes.
Initial academic activities would commence in two Schools namely: Humanities, Management & Social Sciences, and Information Science and Technology. Courses to be developed by the School of Information Science and Technology will be central to the teaching programmes in all Departments. In all, the university has 59 academic programmes.
