Meanwhile, speaking on the various initiatives of the University, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Labode Popoola said “Osun State University is not just a University that is set up to teach the students alone but we give back to the public, enlighten the public on various issues that might have a negative effect on them and care for the people by supporting them in various ways”.
