Our specific objectives are to:
I. Review our current approaches to teaching and learning of sustainability issues as they relate to the design, development and management of human environments
II. Forge a clear direction and identity for our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes by placing more emphasis on sustainable design principles and practices in our teaching and research activities
III. Engage in effective strategies to optimise the existing research strengths in sustainable human settlements for maximum output and impact on our immediate environment
IV. Increase our generation, sharing and dissemination of knowledge by establishing and maintaining a database of research findings and publications in our niche area; and
V. Pursue aggressive collaboration programmes by formalising and strengthening the existing links with other departments in the School of Environmental Sciences in Covenant University, Schools of Architecture and researchers in other Universities/ Institutions, and maintaining constant interactions with the industry and public spheres within and outside Nigeria.
We strongly believe that pursuing this goal can contribute to our drive for relevance locally and visibility globally; and also help us evolve new strategies for achieving our short, medium and long term vision
