About Us

The Directorate of Research Administration and Advancement of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) was established in December 2016 with the aim of setting the University on a path to becoming a leader in cutting edge research that will impact society, meet institutional and national development goals, and raise the institution’s research profile internationally. 

The University Advancement Office, which had been established in 2013, was merged with the directorate in 2016, thus becoming the Directorate of Research Administration and Advancement (DRAA). The office is responsible for developing strategies for maintaining lifelong relationships with Alumni and donors; for endowment and fundraising towards meeting the institution’s stated development goals.
