Established in 2016, Coal City University is a private higher education institution located in the medium-sized city of Enugu (population range of 500,000-1,000,000 inhabitants). Officially accredited and/or recognized by the National Universities Commission, Nigeria, Coal City University (CCU) is a very small (uniRank enrollment range: 500-999 students) coeducational higher education institution. Coal City University (CCU) offers courses and programs leading to officially recognized higher education degrees such as bachelor degrees in several areas of study. See the uniRank degree levels and areas of study matrix below for further details.

The advent of the Coal City University Could be traced to the proactive reaction, ingenuity and resourcefulness of committed compatriots to Government’s invitation to the private sector to participate in providing functional education. It has been realized that education in Nigeria has suffered under what Borishade (2002) as Honourable Minster of Education described as ‘the eternal triangle of education,‘ namely: access, quality and cost, as he wt it while addressing the private sector roundtable on ‘Education for All’ organised by the UNESCO.

This call for educational transformation was harkened to by a group of progressives led by the late genius and an intellectual icon Very Reverend Father Professor Stan Chinedu Nkemegbunam Anih (Eze-udo of Ojebe Ogene clan) in Udi Local Government Area of Enugu State, Nigeria. A colossus who joined forces with like minds (Master-minds in his usual way of expression) to kick-start what is today known as Coal City University.

They include HRM Igwe Justice (11d) Ezebuilo Ozobu, HRH Igwe Hon. Dr. Benjamin Chukwuemeka Nnachetam, Dr. Sylvester E. lgwe, Professor Charles Anikweze, Barr. (Mrs) Chikodi Madu, Ambassador Ogbonnaya Aja-nwachukwu and Chief (Mrs) Felicia Anih among others. These gentlemen and ladies became the pioneering members of the Board of Trustees of the then proposed university and were regarded as promoters.

It is worthy of note that the 2013 SCOPU visit eventually led to the relocation of the take-off site to the present KM3 Enugu Abakaliki express-way Emene, Enugu which was then almost a virgin land.

This period saw a tremendous structural and inhastructural development in the new take-off site under the leadership of Hon. Sir Chinedu Ani. On the 22nd day of November all efforts and visitations paid off with the approval of the Coal City University, Enugu. This joy was later crowned with the issuance of the provisional License to operate as a private university.
