In the 23rd of January 2018, the Senate Executive Committee (SEC) has approved the recommendations to establish its first ever research institute– Institute of Policy and Development Research (IPDR).

The founding of the Institute followed a detailed study which critically examined broad range of issues in addition to the current performance and future prospects of the Center for Policy and Development Research (CPDR). Most importantly, the elevation of CPDR, which was inaugurated in 2015,to the status of a full-fill-aged research institute has been decided in accordance with the broader institutional vision becoming one of the top ranking HEIs in Africa. Thus, IPDR envisages strong focus on research that galvanizes PhD training to bolster both institutional research capacity and national human resource needs by undertaking, need-based high quality policy and development research.
