The immediately succeeding military government of Navy Commodore Bamidele Otiko changed its name to Ondo State University in 1985. Its relocation to Akungba-Akoko in the new Ondo State became imperative in 1999, following the creation of a new State out of the old Ondo three years earlier in October 1996. The bill backing the relocation was signed into law by the then Governor of the State, Chief Adebayo Adefarati, in November 1999, and that prompted the movement of a crop of workers from the old site in Ado-Ekiti to Akungba-Akoko on 1 December 1999.

The origin of older universities in the developed world can be traced in Europe to as far back as twelfth century. Most of them developed from cathedral and monastery schools and other centres of learning under the guidance of academic leaders whose fame spread far beyond their immediate environment, enabling them to attract scholars and students from far and near. Their rates of development varied and it is sometime difficult to know when they actually became full fledged universities. The University of Bologna is believed to be the oldest having been founded in the early twelfth century even though it existed as a law school since the ninth century. The University of Paris with a slight different structure from that of Bologna developed in the late twelfth century. These schools and centres, which where founded mainly to serve the professions, provided unified teaching of law, medicine and theology providing Ministers of Religion and other statesmen and professionals.

The major foundation of what has become Bowen University today was laid in 1854 by the family of the late Reverend Thomas Jefferson Bowen who started a school in Ijaiye Orile in the present Oyo State of Nigeria. The school, which comprised five stewards of the late Bowens, five other labourers, and a few others drawn to the fledging school by sheer curiosity, has grown from this little beginning into thousands of Baptist primary and secondary schools scattered across the country today. By 1960, there was a Baptist school almost everywhere a Baptist congregation exits. The idea of establishing a Baptist University in Nigeria was first conceived in 1938. This was borne out of the Baptist commitment to assisting people to develop their potentials to the fullest. The first bold step towards actualizing this vision was taken in 1956 when a proposal was presented to the meeting of the Baptist Mission held in Eku from 11 to 14 December, 1956.

There is a dearth of instructions and infrastructure to cater for the needs of our ever increasing number of secondary school leavers.

It has always been the desire of the Redeemed Christian Church of God to make input into university education in Nigeria, having been convinced of the great role university education can play in the social and technological development of a nation. This dream could not come true because of the existence of Decree No. 19 of 1984, which proscribed and banned the establishment and operation of private universities. The opportunity was however made available by the Federal Government, when Decree No. 9 of 1993 was promulgated allowing private individuals or organizations to establish universities in Nigeria, provided they meet certain criteria laid down by the Federal Government through the National Universities Commission. In order to realize its dream, the Redeemed Christian Church of God, the Proprietors of the University, initially acquired a large expanse of land in Ede Local Government Area of Osun State, having obtained the Certificate of Statutory Right of Occupancy in 1997.

The three conventional University competencies of Teaching, Research and Community Service have been completely compromised because none of the three is receiving the attention it deserves. The promoters of Renaissance thus conceived of a University that will bring a complete rebirth to the University education system in Nigeria.
