The board of Trustees of Fountain of Joy and Comfort Foundation decided to establish a private University in furtherance of its commitment to promote education. The university, now licensed by the National Universities Commission, is named Margaret Lawrence University. It is set to be a world-class institution committed to the pursuit of knowledge, innovation and excellence. It is aimed to meet the challenges of economic and human development in Nigeria and the greater world as a whole with focus and commitment in teaching and research.

The university will be providing educational programmes which will propel graduates to becoming professionally competent, with a strong foundation of Christian morality, duty and service to the society. It will be a centre of excellence for teaching, learning, research, moral orientation and productivity that will produce well-nurtured men and women who are sound in learning, have critical skills, knowledge and appreciation, as well as are worthy in learning and character so as to be valuable to themselves and to society. Margaret Lawrence University is poised to combine core academic teachings with general studies and entrepreneurial skills causing graduates to be professionally competent, and worthy ambassadors in the Nigerian and global communities.
