Kevin Osondu is the first Black to earn a Ph.D. from the State University of New York at Buffalo.
In addition to the position of Professor of Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Federal University of Technology, Owerri, Nigeria. Dr. Osondu has been a member of the Council of the Nigerian Mathematical Society between 1984 and 1995 first as Assistant Secretary and later Vice-President. I have also been an Associate Editor of the Journal of the Journal of the Nigerian Mathematical Society since 1992.
Since 1995 Dr. Osondu served in the National Mathematical Centre,Abuja. As course organiser, Visiting scientist
and guest lecturer.
