Continuing Education--NSUKKA: A Program of University Extension Aimed at Serving the Practical and Intellectual Needs of a Developing Nation.
Doyle, Louis A.
A history of extension education in Nigeria, particularly as it relates to the University of Nigeria (Nsukka), is given with implications and reflections for other programs in Nigeria and other areas of Africa. Beginning in 1948, with the University College at Ibadan sponsored by the University of London, the history of extra-mural or extension education in Nigeria shows an increasing emphasis on serving people of the area, with the University of Nigeria, from the time of its enactment by the Nigerian Assembly in 1955, concentrating on extension services and the special needs of such varied groups as teachers of English and poultry farmers. The United States Agency for International Development provided $1,000,000 for the Continuing Education Center building, which served people from East and West Africa as well as Nigeria. Because of the civil war beginning in July 1967, the present state and the future of the University are very uncertain. (jf)
