Summit University, Offa, the University of Ansar-Ud-Deen Society of Nigeria (ADSN), is a product of many years of painstaking planning and harnessing of human and material resources. Indeed, the Society remains one of the foremost religious organizations with impressive record in the provision of education for Nigerian students at primary, secondary and tertiary levels irrespective of their religious and ethnic, geographical and political affiliations.
The vision to establish a faith-based university with world-class standard of teaching, research and community service began on 27 February, 2002, when the National Education Board of the Ansar-Ud-Deen Society of Nigeria set up the Higher Education Committee with a view to actualizing the dreams and yearnings of members. On 3 April 2004, the National Executive Committee meeting of, Society resolved to locate the University at Offa, Kwara State. On June 2005, the Society applied formally for operating licence for its private university from the National Universities Commission (NUC) Abuja.
