Analysis of the University of Ibadan Carrying Capacities vis-à-vis Enrolment and Facilities' Maintenance: Implications on Administration and Curriculum Implementation
Atanda, Ademola
African Higher Education Review, v7 n2 p6-14 Jun 2013
This study investigated the extent to which the University of Ibadan complies with carrying capacity standards as directed by the National Universities Commission (NUC) and the level of facility maintenance. A descriptive research design was adopted with three research questions. The population of study comprised undergraduate students and an admission officer. A sample of 156 students and 1 admission officer was selected making a total of 157. A questionnaire was designed to discover students' opinion on facilities maintenance while an inventory was developed to retrieve admission statistics from the Admission Officer. The findings of this study showed that the enrolment of some faculties outweighed their carrying capacities but the overall total enrolment (19,416) of all faculties was below the carrying capacity (19,566) of the university. In view of the implications on university administration and curriculum implementation, it was recommended that the University authorities should adhere strictly to their carrying capacities in line with the NUC's directive. They should further intensify efforts to maintain extant facilities.
