The Oyo (now Osun) State College of Education, Ila-Oragun was established  as a campus of Oyo (now Osun State College of Education, Ilesa in 1979 by the  then Military Administrator of Oyo State, Brigadier (now Rtd.) Major General Paul Tarfa.  The College started on the campus of  the defunct Ila Progressive Commercial College with Dr. S. O. Omotoso as the Head of Campus.  The campus  opened with 150 students and five (5)  staff members, three academic and two  administrative. The official opening ceremony was performed on the 25th  September, 1979 by Chief Ayantayo Ayandele, the then Honourable Commissioner  for Education.

On 1st January, 1981, the College grained autonomy and consequently was  affiliated to the University of Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife).  On 1st  March, 1983, the civilian administration of Oyo State transferred St. Andrew’s  College campus, Oyo and Wesley College campus, Ibadan from Oyo (now Osun) State College of Education, Ilesa to Oyo (now Osun) State College of Education,  Ila-rangun for more effective supervision and co-ordinator.

By 1985, the State Military administration resolved to reduce  the seven (7)  campuses of the two (2) State Colleges of Education to three (3) autonomous  Colleges of Education at Ilesa, Ila-Orangun and Oyo.  As a result, students, staff  and movable materials of the Wesley Campus were shared between the two  Colleges at Ila-Orangun and Oyo.  The college was formally established on 25th  September, 1979 by The Oyo State Government (Ila-Orangun Edict No. 13) of 1986  and The Oyo State College of Education, Ila-Orangun (Amendment) Edict (No. 6)  of 1988.

The College is geared towards the training and production of well-informed,  mature and responsible middle level man-power in the teaching profession.  The  concept of “The Exemplary Teacher” underlines and  permeates the total academic and social programmes of the College;  hence the motto of the College; “Academic  and Moral Excellence”.


In the crest, the book (open text) almost at the centre symbolizes knowledge; it is also indicative of academic search which is the chief aim of the students admitted into the institution.  The moss green colour and black dots surrounding the Book (open text) are indicative of the ecological environment of the institution (i.e. the institution is situated in the green forest area of Osun State).  The crescent-shaped arc which contains the name of the institution signifies elegance and brilliance.  The cream-yellow (butter) colour immediately below the crescent-shaped arc signifies light (light of knowledge and wisdom) shinning in the institution.  The projected cream yellow colour above the crescent-shaped arc like an arrow (triangular in shape) stands for light reaching the society, (i.e. growing out of the institution to reach people outside).

The nine rectangular white shapes below the crescent-shaped arc show the resulting light associated with the acquired knowledge.  The arc-shaped element in black just above the name ILA-ORANGUN in the center stands for a gate (open gate) welcoming into the institution all those wishing to acquire knowledge.

The placement of the twisted arc (in green and white) like a rope is indicative of the importance attached to the palm tree and to palm wine tapping in Ila-Orangun.  The twisted are, therefore, stands for the rope which palm wine tapper use to climb palm trees.  The star immediately above the arc-shaped element stands for the light that is radiating brilliantly to the outside world.


CREAM YELLOW (Butter) indicates youthfulness in ideas and clarity of purpose.  It could also be locally interpreted to mean the colour of Palm wine and also the colour with which buildings on the campus are painted.

GREEN (Moss green) means growth, life and agricultural productivity.

BLACK means the depth of involvement in the giving of sound knowledge.  It also shows the institution’s strength and boldness to compete with other higher institutions in the spheres.
