In 1987, I enrolled as a student at Columbia International University. CIU attracted me because of the university's heart for reaching the nations with the message of Jesus Christ. That focus kept me here after graduation as a professor, provost and now president. Today, CIU continues its mission of reaching the world with the message of Christ by educating people from a Christian worldview. We provide students not only with an excellent education, but add an emphasis on character transformation and the necessary ministry skills to make a world of difference for the name of Christ.
As you surf the pages of the CIU website, you will see the fabric that makes us distinct. Our motto: "to know Him and to make Him known" clearly captures the tapestry God has woven since 1923. If your heart resonates with what you read and you would like to know more about CIU, please let us know how we may serve you.
