A Message From Our President

Dear friend,

What is your passion? All of us have an intense interest or enthusiasm for an area of life and learning to which God calls us. At Columbia International University we can help you pursue that God-instilled passion with a program of study that will not only help you make a living, but simultaneously make an impact.   

Our purpose at CIU is to educate students from a biblical worldview to impact the nations with the message of Christ. So, when your passion intersects with our purpose, the possibilities for your future are endless, and eternal. 

You’ll be encouraged by faculty members who profess a faith in Christ and value scholarship as they share their expertise and life experiences with you. Just as iron sharpens iron, you’ll also be introduced to fellow students who will encourage you to develop your potential as it becomes clear where your passion can lead you.

I know. I’m a former CIU student. In 1987, I enrolled at CIU because of its unwavering and unchanging core beliefs and its affirmation of the Bible as the foundation for all life and learning. Once you graduate, you’ll become a part of CIU’s network of 18,000 alumni in 150 countries, keeping you connected to all corners of the globe.   

Our graduates not only serve around the world, they serve locally too; in schools, in business offices, in church, in the courts, in the mission field – wherever there is a need, CIU has a presence.

Tap into your full potential for God at Columbia International University.

Dr. William H. Jones, President
