The Academic Experience

Classwork, faith and deeds come together in CIU’s Educational Triad: Head, Heart and Hands. They form the core of the academic experience here. They’re our educational philosophy.

At CIU, the Bible is the head of all learning, the heart is growing in maturity in Christ, and the hands develop skills to meet your personal and professional goals.

Classes are small and led by professors accomplished in scholarly and professional life. Challenging academics helps put our students at the head of the class.

Building the spiritual life whose call brings students to CIU is at the heart of what we do. Daily chapel gatherings, prayer days, and inspiring conferences empower unity, worship and joy. Quiet places on our beautiful campus inspire private moments of personal growth.

Away from the classroom, CIU students lend a hand around the world – teaching, coaching and leading.
