The demands of lifelong Leaming (LLL) and Education For All (EFA) pose new challenges to the University. Ensuring the success of EFA and LLL necessitates more than the creation of additional degrees and post-graduate programs. The demand cannot be accommodated by admitting more undergraduate students. The major challenge for the University concerns the incorporation of thousands of non-matriculated individuals, both young and old, who seek to advance their knowledge base. This demands the introduction of professional and non-degree programs that cater to this population. The University of Lagos has taken some steps in this direction through the establishment of the Human Resources Development Committee, which caters for non-degree-seeking students. The focus of this study is to ascertain the extent to which the programs run by this establishment have contributed to the achievement of EF A and the Millennium Development Goals.
