Having observed that lack of moral values is one of the major causes leading to break down of laws and order and in spite of preaching, sermonizing and talking that seem to yield no positive change; there ought to be something non-verbally that can be done without even uttering a word. Every society is faced with one problem or the other. However, the so-called societal problems, upon careful and final analysis, dissolve in moral problems. The social, economic, religious, political, cultural, technological and educational problems facing nations all over the world are essentially moral in nature and character. The mere rhetoric of been found worthy in character and learning read at universities convocation ceremonies is a far cry from what is actually obtainable. Ultimately suggestion of a network of paralinguistic phenomena that have potentials of enhancing and advancing the moral values of university students are highlighted. It is recommended that para-linguistic theory and practice of non-verbal communication be vigorously applied by lecturers who would be adequately balanced so that students would achieve a combined academic and moral educational worth that will benefit humanity. Keywords: Sermonizing, Non-verbal Communication, Moral Values, Character, Educational Worth
