Provost Welcome Address


Welcome to Federal College of Education (Technical) Potiskum

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to Federal College of Education (Tech) Potiskum.

This College fosters achievement in all areas of study, but it is especially dedicated to achievement in Education, which is an essential part of a flourishing society, and a good life. It was founded in 1991.

We are especially dedicated to supporting achievement and establish relationships of lasting consequence between students and the people who teach and advise them. We offer interdisciplinary education and academic mentoring. We foster relationships between people from different backgrounds and enable students to explore diversity in a setting that is socially relaxed but academically intense. We also encourage personal and social responsibility by creating opportunities for students to share their learning with the community and to make meaningful contributions to the places where they live. The result, we hope, are NCE graduates who are prepared to engage the complexities of life in a changing world with curiosity, empathy, resilience, and joy.

Every student of this college is unique and remakes the College in his or her own way, adding new threads to the constantly evolving fabric of our community. A fabric that we are making together, from the resources of our diverse experiences, aspirations, and needs.

The College staff will always do its best to make the college a place where creative and intellectual experiences, of lasting importance, continue to be the norm for every student. But, we count on you to help us reach that goal, no matter who you are or where you have come from or what you want to learn here. Very little can happen without the enthusiasm and participation of the students for whom the College exists. There are countless ways to make good use of your time here, but they all begin with curiosity, a willingness to meet new people and try new things, and a desire to make your mark. Let us help you do that.

I invite you to explore our College in the pages of this website. See what courses we offer here and read the stories that we tell about our transformative experiences. Get to know the College Staff and contact us with your questions.

Sincerely yours,


Dr. Muhammad Madu Yunusa
