BRIEF HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSITY

The Universal Reformed Christian Church (URCC) is the sole proprietor of University of Mkar, Mkar a Christian University situated in Benue State. The URCC evolved from the Dutch reformed Christian mission and the Sudan United Mission. Its core mandate was primarily to evangelize the Tiv land and other parts of Nigeria. However with time, education, health care delivery and agricultural development initiatives were incorporated as vital components of their evangelical mission
Mkar town from where the University derives its name has played host to many schools established by the Universal Reformed Christian Church including the first Teachers Training College in North Central Nigeria, lather the Institute of Christian and Management Studies.
Because of the desire to evangelize the Nigerian society and the rest of the world with the instrumentality of university education using the campus as a mission field informed the desire to establish the University of Mkar and by June 2005 the National Universities Commission (NUC) issued the URCC a license for the Institution.
Consequent upon the acquisition of an operational license from the NUC, the Proprietor galvanized momentum and initiated the University of Mkar’s Vision and mission by mobilizing for the takeoff of the institution and today the university is neck deep in the business of breeding agents of change for the society, the church and the academy who upon graduation are released like divine arrows to specific sectors of the nation’s economy to drive home the expected change.
