Pacific Islands University (PIU) exists to provide accessible, excellent, transformational Christian higher education and ministry training to the people of Micronesia, the Pacific islands, and to the ends of the earth. As such, our mission is to prepare men and women with a biblical worldview for leadership and service in life, work, and ministry in the global community and the church.
PIU was founded in 1976 as the Micronesian Institute of Biblical Studies (MIBS). In 1991, MIBS became Pacific Islands Bible College (PIBC). Most recently, on July 1, 2009, PIBC became Pacific Islands University. The institution received accreditation from the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (TRACS) since 2004, which is recognized by the United States Department of Education (USDE), the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), and the International Network for Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education (INQAAHE).
PIU is a 501(c)(3) non-profit institution.
