Education is a tool of high value to the welfare of any soc1ety as 1t IS cruc1al 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 achieve the goal of transforming higher education by becoming one of the best ten universities in the world by the year, 2022 (otherwise known as Vis1on 10:2022). Thus, the objective of this study is to investigate the preparedness of the employees to accept the CU vision and the factors that would s1gn1ficantly motivate the desired level of acceptance This is important because organizations can hardly grow beyond the quality and support of the1r workforce. The study utilized data collected from a randomly selected sample of both academic and admmistrative employees of the university. Thereafter regression analysis was performed to identify the determinants of acceptance of the vision 10:2022. The results of th1s study show that the v1s1on 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 that could constrain the effective implementation and actualization of the vision. This IS crit1cal , especially that the mean score for the accepfance 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 address1ng those others that .have the potential to stall effective implementation and actualization. To this end, management should address more specifically the issues bordering on job security. promotion trust and adopt a more participative approach to management
