The objectives of the University of Nigeria Staff Awards are to:


  • Inspire and reward lecturers and individuals practicing good teaching and leadership in the institution
  • To reinforce the values of progress, affiliation, and active lecturing in the institution
  • To encourage good lecturing in school, rather than lecturing to fulfill all righteousness, and to measure the lecturer’s progress in relation to personal capabilities rather than external standards of achievement
  • Encourage lectures to relate with the students within and outside the classroom
  • Create a social avenue or platform where lecturers can socialize with the students once a year
