Consequent upon the tour, the DAP directed the Dean of CNREM, Prof. Anthony A. Nlewadim to come up with a proposal for the establishment of Department of EMT.
A College committee made up of Prof. (Mrs.) G. C. Onuoha, Dr. Anthony Okeke and Prof. E. C. Nzegbule had consultations with stakeholders and produced a draft proposal. On June 27, 2012, Senate of MOUAU, at its 144th Regular Meeting and in its wisdom, approved the creation of the Department of Environmental Management and Toxicology with effect from the 2012/2013 academic session and charged it to award the degree of Bachelor of Environmental Management and Toxicology (BSc.). However, the final working document containing the philosophy, objective and course synopsis was produced by Prof. (Mrs.) G. C. Onuoha, Prof. P. A Ogwo and Dr.(Mrs.) C. Nwakanma.
