Taraba State Polytechnic has many students that come from different backgrounds. The school has equipped a lot of students (men and women) who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done. Read on for more information.
Without guidelines to direct their conduct, it would be challenging to function efficiently.
To foster an environment that is favourable for academic performance and advancement, law and order must be upheld. The polytechnic has a duty to guide students’ personal development so that they can become contributing members of society in addition to educating them.
Only when knowledge enables its owner to live a complete life—one that includes responsible behaviour toward oneself and toward society—does knowledge have any real value.
