Kwararafa University Wukari was licensed as Wukari Jubilee by the National Universities Commission in 2005. It took off in March, 2006 with 61 students as the first community promoted University in Nigeria, the first University in Taraba State and the second private University in the North East Geopolitical zone of Nigeria. Located at Wukari an ancient city that was for a while the headquarters of the historically famous Kwararafa Confederacy, the University officially changed its name from Wukari Jubilee to Kwararafa in February 2012 to reflect the cultural and historical roots of the confederacy which at the zenith of its powers extended to modern Niger, Plateau, Kogi, Nasarawa and Benue States and FCT in the north central geo-political zone, Edo and Cross River in the South-south zone, Kebbi, Kaduna, Kano and Katsina States in the north west zone and Bauchi, Gombe, Yobe and Adamawa States in the north east zone. Kwararafa University enjoys cordial relations with its host community and attracts students from Taraba and 22 other states of the Federation.
