It is my honor and privilege to welcome you to the Federal University Dutse. Students of the Federal University Dutse are engaged in the process of growth and change. The extent and intensity of each student’s involvement in the academic work and other aspects of campus life determine to a large extent the level of individual success. The campus environment is formative for students and is instrumental in their effort to achieve academic success and personal fulfilments.
Students are, therefore, expected to be hardworking and always strive for excellence by taking advantage of the facilities and opportunities available in the University. Similarly, they are enjoined to buy into our core values and directive principles. This will help create a civilized atmosphere conducive for teaching, learning, research and service. It will also equip our students when they graduate to be able to thrive in the world beyond the four corners of our university. Students should note that they are ultimately responsible for their own lives and actions. It is therefore essential that they strive to maintain discipline and uphold the principles of tolerance in a plural environment such as ours. Students are enjoined to tackle their problems in a mature and decent manner. The University undertakes to help our dear students in realizing their legitimate objectives and will only restrain those who violate the rules or cross the bounds of decency.
We hope to nurture a sound relationship with our students and eventually our alumni for their mutual benefit and that of the University. I enjoin you to take advantage of your university years, make friends and learn from another; more importantly from your teachers.
When you eventually leave FUD as graduates, you shall go forth into the world as energized and empowered young men and women, who will face the challenges of life ahead confidently and squarely.
I wish you a pleasant stay at the Federal University Dutse.
Prof. Fatima Batul Mukhtar
