Yobe State University Staff Capacity Building Programme

The Centre for Research and Capacity Development in Humanitarian Studies (CRCDHS) has specifically been established for people with or without prior field experience who wish to undertake or develop a career in the humanitarian sector. In addition, the Centre is engaged in teaching, capacity development for practicing professionals and research related to emergency humanitarian response. Initial success has been attained through hosting of food security focused emergency response training offered by the World Food Programme (WFP)

The university management is proud to announce that an e-Granary server has been installed in the University's intranet. The server contains more than 32 million documents, each of them fully indexed and searchable using our powerful, built-in search engine.
