The Layer3 Universities Alliance Network (LUAN) is a program that promotes collaboration between Layer3 and select universities in Nigeria to drive the adaptation of new IT technologies, develop capacity among the university IT teams and students studying IT-related courses and encourage innovation. The alliance will attract and develop talented students preparing them to face opportunities and challenges of the real world post-graduation and will empower teachers and staff in technology appreciation thereby supporting the growth of ICT within the university and the country as a whole.

Layer3, through this program, will provide support, learning platforms, consulting and advisory services to your institution. LUAN is active in universities where Layer3 has deployed ICT services and the alliance will further bolster a mutually beneficial relationship between Layer3 and your university.
