University of Port Harcourt
The Right Livelihood College is a network of ten universities on all continents and one global university network.
The University of Port Harcourt, based in oil-rich Niger delta in Nigeria, was established in 1975 and received university status in 1977.
The RLC campus is based at the Faculty of Social Sciences and is co-hosted by the Health of Mother Earth Foundation(HOMEF), a think-tank and advocacy organisation founded by Right Livelihood Award recipient Nnimmo Bassey.
In October 2013, the University of Port Harcourt became a campus of the RLC with the mission to generate tools for tackling problems of environmental pollution and related socio-economic issues caused by the petroleum industry and that these tools would find application in other challenged territories beyond the Niger Delta.
