The units under the Office of the VP ILEA namely  the Office of Institutional Linkages (OIL), Office of International Affairs (OIA), Office of Public Affairs and Information (OPAI) and the Alumni Affairs Office (AAO) continuously work to establish linkages with local and foreign institutions for student and faculty exchange programs, student and faculty scholarships, joint research activities, exchange of academic materials and publications, laboratory sharing, joint organization of international research conferences and other exchanges of academic and cultural in nature.

 The Office of the VP ILEA is steadfast in its role to elevate TSU as an academic abode and a welcoming institution where differences in gender, religion and ethnicity are put aside and emphasis is given to the total development of students through quality education.

This website will allow you to explore TSU’s unceasing mission of cultivating minds and hearts and producing globally competitive graduates who are not only knowledgeable about the world but also appreciative and sensitive to the world’s diversity.
