The greatest gift is the passion for reading.
It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites.
It gives you knowledge of the world and experience of a wide kind.
It is a moral illumination
In pursuance of Covenant University’s mandate of raising a new generation of leaders with unparallel strength of character rooted in godliness and development of holistic leadership competencies, and qualities, a resource Unit known as Spiritual & Leadership Development (SLD) is set up in CLR to provide a platform to build such required capacity and confidence requisite for solving life’s challenges at all times.
The rich collection in the section endowed by the Chancellor, Dr. David Oyedepo, is a practical demonstration and eloquent testimony of his passionate commitment to the realization of one of the founding philosophies of the University as a centre of change and departure from mere knowledge acquisition to empowerment.
SLD is made up of latest collections on leadership and spiritual growth. These include print (books, magazines, newsletters) and non-print (audio CDs and cassettes, video CDs and cassettes). The section operates full multi-media services using electronic equipment such as television sets, CD & MP3 players, video players etc. The establishment of SLD section in CLR clearly recognizes the triune nature of man as constituting spirit, soul and body and the need to pay equal attention to the development of these vital components to have a complete well-rounded man.
The section complements the in-house custom-built Total Man Concept (TMC) which is at the core of learning in Covenant University. TMC is a new training paradigm that places equal emphasis on learning character and physical fitness.
