Ansar-Ud-Deen Society of Nigeria (ADSN) established Summit University, Offa as an Islamic-faith based institution to offer qualitative tertiary education to all Nigerians irrespective of religion, tribe, sex and creed. The University obtained its Provisional Licence (No. 59th private University) issued by the National Universities Commission (NUC) on March 5, 2015.
The Proprietor’s decision to locate the University at Offa, Kwara State is partly due to the historic role of Offa as a foremost education and peace loving community that established several educational institutions through self-help efforts. A case in point is Offa Grammar School, the first community secondary school in Northern Nigeria which was established in 1943
