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, ethnicity, sex and creed. The University obtained its Provisional Licence (No. 59th private University) issued by the National Universities Commission (NUC) on March 5, 2015 and Permanent Operational Licence in April 1, 2019.
The University has a unique approach to tertiary education involving a triple helix model of knowledge, skills, and moral; all intertwined using cutting-edge technology. Courses which expose students to Arabic and Islamic ethics, history, civilisation and heritage are introduced to enable students to be adequately equipped in life for their future material and spiritual development. This approach imparts on graduates such that they can stand on their own after graduation and be job creators instead of job seekers and be God-fearing.
