ORIGIN OF AUGUSTINIAN INSTITUTE MAKURDI

For several years, the Order of Saint Augustine, Province of Saint Augustine of Nigeria has nurtured the idea of building an Institute that would thrive on the Augustinian pedagogy and thus, contribute to National Development. This is attested to by the presence of the collective vision of the friars in the Acts of the Chapter of several years. In 2013, this vision arrived the shores of realization as the Provincial Council, after due consultation and in collaboration with the Augustinian Curia, Rome endorsed that it should kick off with the new academic session of 2013/2014. In 2013, on the 4th day of October, the Institute was inaugurated by the Prior Provincial, Very Rev. Fr. John Abubakar, OSA. Since the inauguration of the Institute, it has been for the Province of Saint Augustine of Nigeria, a citadel of philosophical learning and academic excellence. Its identity is sustained by the Augustinian Educational Pedagogy of Mentis et Cordis (of the Mind and of the Heart), which is principled by the humanization of the human person more and more. Saint Augustine writes: "He studies humanities, why? In order to be human; that is to say, to be a worthy man among men" (Disc. Chr. XI, 12). Therefore, this institute is defined by typical Augustinian values of: through interiority to truth; through love to liberty; through friendship to community.
