The Centre for Igbo Studies is a very newly established centre which is trying to have a footing among other well-established centres/institutes. As at now the centre has no building of its own, but is temporarily housed within the student’s union multipurpose complex. Other militating factors include lack of funds for proper functioning.
The Centre for Igbo Studies was established in 2014 with Dr. Tony Nwaezeigwe as the first Ag. Director. The current director was appointed on August 1, 2015. The centre is established in the University of Nigeria as a melting pot for all researches, studies, investigations and information about various aspects of Igbo life.
