Welcome to Official Homepage of ANUPA Nigeria
The Association of Nigerian University Professional Administrators henceforth referred to as ‘’ANUPA’’ is the mouth piece of Professional Administrators in Nigerian University. It is a forum for mutual education and cross fertilization of ideas on universities. ANUPA, a brainchild of ARNU is charged with the training of young Administrators in Nigerian Universities. Thus as a body, ANUPA firmly believes that the strength of every organization, and indeed, every University is in her people, teaching and non- teaching. Consequently, the thrust of its activities remains ensuring that a variety of trainings is made available in order for staff to be productive in their different roles within the Universities and develop as individuals. Staff development and training should therefore, form a fundamental part of our Universities . ANUPA aims to promote and advance professional administrative knowledge and best practices in Nigerian Universities.
FROM THE PRESIDENT’S DESK -ANUPA’S EXPECTED GREAT LEAP
The Association of Nigeria University Professional Administrators (ANUPA) no doubt is the brainchild of Association of Registrars of Nigerian Universities (ARNU). Obviously, it has the responsibility of equipping Professional Administrators in Nigeria Universities with requisite skills to facilitate the provision of adequate & sufficient administrative support for academic excellence.
The present Executive Committee under my watch shall therefore strive to enhance best Global administrative practices in our Universities and similar other institutions.
Our strategy from takeoff thus is poised to ensure;
- high level & sustained collaboration with ARNU & Sister professional Bodies;
- a strong united team with all accruing advantages to place ANUPA appropriately for the great task ahead;
- maximally utilize the foundation & structures put in place by our predecessor for the expected great leap.
Our indefatigable team therefore looks forward to receiving necessary suggestions and support from all stakeholders towards ensuring better University Administration and by extension the required general societal progress.

In fulfilling the mandate of spear-heading training for university administrators, ANUPA is very conscious of the fact that academic excellence must be supported by professional support staff.
Therefore, there is a compelling imperative for continuous training and re-retraining of her members who must hone existing skills and urgently develop contemporary ones; particularly IT skills to be able manage operational aspects of a university increasingly being driven by IT. Sadly, across Nigerian Universities, the reality is that a significant percentage our low and middle level Administrators rate very poorly in the competencies and skills for their roles. A university administrator who can deploy sound IT skills in the various processes of university administration is an asset and would contribute productively to the achievement of university goals of:
- Create, advance and disseminate knowledge
- Develop outstanding high quality graduates and scholars.
- Make resounding impact upon local, national and the global society
