The Tree Planting Exercise took place earlier today, 14th May 2023 as the Founder/Chancellor (Engr Dr. JBO Adewumi) led the exercise to Celebrate Thomas Adewumi University's Second Year Anniversary. Two native tree species were carefully selected to ensure biodiversity and enhance the ecosystem's resilience. They include: Tik and Mahogany trees.
This momentous occasion witnessed the presence of our esteemed Vice-Chancellor (Prof. Francisca Oladipo), along with the distinguished Registrar, Director of Physical Planning and Development, the Chief Security Officer of the University and a few other members of the University community.
While carrying out the exercise, the Chancellor said “Trees are very important, we are only building on what God has started according to a passage from the Bible; Gen 2:9. By planting trees today, we are sowing the seeds for a sustainable future. Together, we can make a significant impact in our society."

This activity symbolizes the alignment of our University's core values with our actions. As we come together to plant trees, we reaffirm our dedication to cultivating a learning environment that nurtures responsible global citizens who are conscious of their impact in the society. It also provides an opportune moment to reflect upon our achievements thus far and envision a brighter future, founded on sustainable principles and environmental consciousness and to make a tangible impact on the local ecosystem.
By nurturing a culture of environmental stewardship, Thomas Adewumi University has once again demonstrated its commitment to shaping not only educated minds but also a greener, more sustainable world. In years to come, we will be the first to have this tree resources and emerge as a sustainable leader in our nearest environment by extension our community at large.
