Consilience as bethought in this paper is delimited to the agreement, cooperation and overlap of academic disciplines where approaches to a subject matter of different academic subjects especially science and the humanities come to the fore. Conviviality as a tool on the other hand frowns against a single version of good life in a world peopled by infinite possibilities but rather encourages competitive and complementary processes of social cultivation through practice, performance and experience. These two concepts are aptly considered for the purpose of promoting diversity and inclusion, scholarships, communion, cutting-edge research, collaboration, creativity and innovation, which seem to have been an eroded phenomenon in the last few decades. The methodology adopted in this paper is contextual analysis with sourced information from journals, textbooks and literature. This paper proposes that both consilience and conviviality can become underlying guides for revival of scholarship, multidisciplinary , trans-disciplinarity, and integrative eclecticism in Nigerian universities, most especially within the context of teaching, learning and research.
