It was founded by the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria through a resolution given at its March 2002 meeting in Abuja.
The initiative came from the Bishops' quest for a University that would provide high quality tertiary education according to the noble tradition of the Catholic Church.
The mission of Veritas University is to provide its students with an integral and holistic formation that combines academic and professional training with physical, moral, spiritual, social and cultural formation together with formation of Christian religious principles and the social Teachings of the Catholic Church.
Who we Are.
We are a dynamic community of staff and students with Christian orientation and inspiration who, motivated by the ideals of hard work, integrity, dicipline and creativeness, and dedicated to Catholic principles and attitudes, work together to create knowledge for the advancement of the Nigerian society
