Landmark University is a private, residential University established by a Christian Mission Organization – World Mission Agency Inc., (WMA) – an outreach arm of the Living Faith Church Worldwide.
The founding Vision leading to the establishment of the University was given to Dr. David O. Oyedepo about 30 years ago with the following Vision call:
“The hour has come to liberate the world from all oppressions of the devil through the preaching of the WORD of faith and I am sending you to undertake this task”
The education mandate was given as a critical extension of that liberation vision. Landmark University is therefore the proprietor’s fresh effort in providing solution to the challenges confronting the Nigerian nation in the hope of achieving accelerated national development. It therefore shall promote change as a philosophy to enable achievement of the urgent need to steer humanity and particularly Africans away from ignorance and poverty. Secondly, it shall run her programmes on the philosophy of developing a total man. The Total Man concept shall be an aspect of the curricula which shall aim at achieving sound, conscious and continuous development of the three components of the human being-the spirit, soul and the body. Thirdly, the University shall promote a philosophy that focuses on learning of life skills and entrepreneurial education as a major requirement for impactful living and for profitable engagement of acquired skills in the external context and the world of work.
Productive change shall be promoted without respect for tradition by unbounded exploration in an ambience that promotes optimum learning.
The object of the philosophy of change shall revolve around the following:
- Facilitating the Proprietors conviction on the urgent need to discover, develop and engage the great human and natural resources potentials of the nation
- Focusing the University’s learning efforts around the urgent need to minimize national poverty occasioned by a limited translation of received and acquired knowledge into tangible and quality output through strategic interface with research and development.
- Facilitating the realization of the Promoters’ convictions that the heavy investment warranted by this establishment decision will enable wider attention and deeper effect to the achievement of the prime objectives of developing the nation’s human and natural resource capacities.
- The Proprietors’ aim specifically at giving fulfilling consciousness to the black man in terms of taking up personal responsibility for growth and development on the basis of his rich endowments.
