Abstract

The study examined students’ perceptions of the impact of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) industrial actions on the development of Nigerian public universities. The study setting was the University of Ibadan, Nigeria. The study adopted the descriptive research of a survey type of design. A sample size of 392 was generated for the study using the Yaro Yamane formula (1992). Data for this study were collected with use of a questionnaire. Data collected were statistically treated with mean computation and standard deviation. The major findings show that: ASUU industrial actions had moderate functional impacts ( = 2.89) on the university development by: compelling the government to do the needful in ensuring the development of the University, and uncovering the deplorable state of the university. The study also revealed that, ASUU industrial actions had high dysfunctional impacts ( = 3.41) on the university development by: disrupting academic calendar thereby extending students stay on campus; and damaging the reputation of the university system. The study concluded that, if public Nigerian universities are to function effectively, the dysfunctional effects of ASUU industrial actions must be effectively minimised.
