Welcome to The Centre for Gender and Development Studies
I heartily welcome CGDS students to the Centre for Gender and Development Studies (CGDS). This is a Centre of excellent that fosters future scientists with fundamental academic skills in theory, practice and the zeal to contribute to the advancement of our society and mankind in general. In the Centre for Gender and Development Studies, we encourage our students to focus on academic excellence as well as produce well-rounded academic resourceful individuals who would be able to build and sustain healthy relationships with peers, employers and the wider community. We also desire that our students become deep thinkers who are capable of profounding solutions to societal problems.
The Centre has series of programmes which cut across Gender & Development Studies and Social Work. We also encourage academic collaborations with various faculties and students to allow more potent exchange of knowledge through our monthly academic paper presentations. Our staff is friendly, committed and capable academic and administrative personnel.
I therefore use this medium to encourage all members of the public to take advantage of our various programmes in the Centre in developing their skills on the job and also acquire more relevant knowledge in various vocations.
