The Council of Higher Institutions (COHI) is an organ of Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria, Lagos State Area Unit. Its utmost goal is the unification of all Muslim students on various campuses across Lagos State. Our core values are academic excellence, students’ welfare, moral rectitude, and spiritual uplift. For over two decades of existence, COHI have been at the forefront of bringing together Muslims in various campuses, maintaining the core values of Islam without compromise despite the overwhelming influence of divergent civilization on students.
The society, Muslim Students' Society of Nigeria, is the meeting point for all Muslim Students in all Higher Institutions, Secondary Schools in most part (if not all), graduate and Post Graduates as well as Muslims who attend technical institution, like the craftsmen and women in Nigeria. Frankly speaking, this society has one of the largest spread of society in (religious or otherwise) in the whole of Nigeria. The major objective is that it may be the forum for making every Muslim youth that is privileged to attend any school in the country, secondary or tertiary, to be conscious about Islam and being its ambassadors.

The Campus Interactive Forum (C.I.F.), another major event organised has been a meeting point for students across various tertiary institutions to exchange opinions and discuss major issues affecting the youth, country and the world at large.
