WELCOME MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

It gives me much pleasure to welcome you to this official website of the University of Port Harcourt Foundation (UPHF). The Foundation, being responsible for both fund raising activities and fund investment management, has the primary role of supporting the University to actualize her mission and vision statements.

It is no more a secret that governments at all levels have not been able to provide all the financial needs of her academic institutions. The situation is not different at the University of Port Harcourt. However, more importantly to note here is the fact that zero tolerance for corruption will guarantee availability of the scarce resources for meaningful productivity.

The University of Port Harcourt Foundation (UPHF) stands for ‘no room for corruption’ so as to ensure maximal impact while working with the slogan: ‘giving where your gift works the work.’ Our Foundation is ready to collaborate with you to ensure that your intention for every donation is met.

Not only our beloved Alumni are warmly encouraged to be in partnership with us, but corporate bodies and all philanthropic minds globally, as well as every patriotic Nigerian.  Bring it on and we are ready to work with you to make your statements in support of our University loud and clear.

Thank you.

Signed

HISTORY

The University of Port Harcourt Foundation is a sub-unit within the University. It was established first as a University Advancement Centre (UAC) in 2003 to cater for the financial needs of the University through fundraising. In 2013 the Centre was rechristened University of Port Harcourt Foundation (UPHF) with a mandate to work in conjunction with the Advancement Centre to invest and manage funds.

University of Port Harcourt Foundation is situated on the Delta Park Campus of the University of Port Harcourt in the Niger Delta area of the South-Southern part of Nigeria

Over the years, the Centre recorded remarkable results, notable among them was the launch of the maiden 5 years Capital Campaign titled “Actualising the Future” (2006-2010). The Centre also launched the Annual Giving Programme which enabled the alumni and other interested stakeholders to give a certain amount annually in perpetuity.

Professor Chukwudi O. Onyeaso was appointed the 3rd Executive Director of the University of Port Harcourt Foundation (UPHF) in September, 2020. He is a Professor of Orthodontics and Consultant Orthodontist. Professor Onyeaso also has interest in Sports Dentistry (promoting the use of mouthguards in sports especially among children and young adults).  He is happily married with children.

He has served the University in various capacities. Before his appointment as the Executive Director, he was a two-term Dean, Faculty of Dentistry, University of Port Harcourt and Honorary Director of Clinical Dental Services at the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital (UPTH). As the Executive Director of the University Port Harcourt Foundation, he is poised to build on the existing works of his predecessors and to move the Foundation to greater heights.

Professor Chukwudi O. Onyeaso, the current Executive Director of the Foundation, has the dream of not just building on the existing achievements of the past Directors, but to introduce new ideas that will help further in actualizing the Mission of the University which is the pursuit of academic excellence, the advancement of knowledge and community service.
