From the President

Wow! I am so excited to share with you the wonderful message and mission of education through the Columbia International University campus. For the last 22 years, I have been working in Christian universities to prepare students to reach the nations with the message of Christ and now it is my privilege to serve at CIU!

During my own college experience, I learned many of the character building leadership skills that I use today. In fact, at my alma mater, my heart was set on fire to burn for the cause of Christ. At Columbia International University, we will invest in you the five core values: the Authority of Scripture, World Evangelization, Prayer and Faith, Victorious Christian Living, and Evangelical Unity. These core values will be poured into you on our campus.

Our desire is to prepare you to serve this generation. Highly qualified faculty will develop you intellectually as well as challenge you spiritually to make sure your heart stays tender toward God. Grace will flow with care and concern from the faculty and staff of our university.

Professionally, it is our desire to fully equip you for a profession that prepares you with excellence wherever you may serve - in this country or around the world. You see, you are our investment of time and treasure because we believe you can change the world.

I welcome you to the Columbia International University campus. We are a growing, dynamic body of professionals desiring to pour our lives into you. Take the CIU Challenge and learn how “To Know Him and Make Him known!”

Welcome to the Family,

Dr. Mark A. Smith
