Etched in stone across the Columbia International University campus are CIU’s five foundational core values: Authority of Scripture, Victorious Christian Living, World Evangelization, Prayer & Faith, and Evangelical Unity. An emphasis on each core value is scheduled each school year, most recently through the Christian Life Conference, a week challenging students, faculty and staff to grow and become victorious in their Christian walk.
