Recently, the Vice-Chancellor of DELSU, Prof. Andy Egwunyenga, said the university has made giant academic and infrastructural strides that have placed it in an enviable position in the comity of universities within and outside Nigeria.

Speaking at the institution’s 2023 matriculation ceremony held in Abraka on January 20, 2023, the V-C averred that DELSU has proven its mettle in pursuing its primary objectives.

He said: “The Alper/Doger (AD) Scientific Index Ranking for 2023 listed Delta State University (DELSU) as the 27th best university in Nigeria and the 4th best state university in Nigeria.

“It further listed DELSU as the best state university in the South-South and South-East Nigeria…these indices are huge improvements from the previous rankings of DELSU.”
