Education is a tool of high value to the welfare of any society as it is crucial to the resolution of complex problems and development challenges in the world today. It is in this regard that, Covenant University (CU) has set out to achieV,.e the goal of transforming higher education by becoming one of the best ten universities in the wor1&1>y the year, 2022 (otherwise known as Vision 1 0:2022). Thus, the objective of this study is to investigate the preparedness of the employees to accept the CU vision and the factors that would significantly motivate the desired level of acceptance. This is important because organizations can hardly grow beyond the quality and support of their workforce. The study utilized data collected from a randomly selected sample of both academic and administrative employees of the university. Thereafter, regression analysis was performed to identify the determinants of acceptance of the vision 10:2022. The results of this study show that the vision has the potential to be actualized within the set period. However, the management of the university should take proactive steps to address the factors which have been identified in the study)hat cou ld constrain the effective implementation and actualization of the vision. This is critical , especially that the mean score for the acceptance of the vision is moderate. Given the time frame within which the vision is expected to be actualized, the moderate score needs to be improved upon by strengthening the variables currently impacting the vision positively and addressing those others that have the potential to stall effective implementation and actualization. To this end, management should address f)1ore specifically the issues bordering on job security, promotion, trust and adopt a more participative approach to management
