In a bid to expand its humanitarian reach and foster greater community engagement, the Nigerian Red Cross Society, Irepodun Local Government Chapter has expressed interest in establishing a collaboration with Landmark University on Wednesday 10th April 2024. The proposed partnership aims to establish a Red Cross detachment on the university campus, offering students, faculty, and staff an avenue to participate actively in humanitarian efforts.

Mr. James Ibiwoye, Chair of the Nigerian Red Cross in Irepodun Local Government, presented the organization's intentions during a meeting with the University management. He highlighted the existing involvement of university faculty and staff as members and officials of the Red Cross, emphasizing the need for a dedicated detachment on campus to further integrate the university community into the society's initiatives. Members of the Landmark University community in the society were Dr Bamidele Fakinle (Head of the Department of Chemical Engineering) the Secretary of the Society, and Dr Marion Adebiyi (Head of the Department of Computer Science) a member. 

In response, the Vice-Chancellor of Landmark University expressed appreciation for the consideration of the university in the Red Cross's expansion plans. Drawing parallels between the vision and values of both organizations, particularly in the areas of volunteering and leadership, he underscored the significance of sacrifice as a core value shared by the university and the Red Cross. 

Corroborating the Vice-Chancellor were the positive remarks by other members of the university's management present at the meeting, who voiced their support for the acceptance and operation of the Red Cross on the Landmark University campus. The proposed collaboration holds the promise of enhancing the university's commitment to community service and humanitarianism, providing valuable opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to contribute meaningfully to societal welfare.

As discussions progress between Landmark University and the Nigerian Red Cross Society, both parties are poised to embark on a partnership that exemplifies the spirit of collaboration and shared values. Together, they aim to create a platform for fostering a culture of service and selflessness within the university community, ultimately making a positive impact on the broader society.
