About Columbia International University
In 1987, I enrolled as a student at Columbia International University. CIU attracted me because of the university's heart for reaching the nations with the message of Jesus Christ. That focus kept me here after graduation as a professor, provost and now president. Today, CIU continues its mission of reaching the world with the message of Christ by educating people from a Christian worldview. We provide students not only with an excellent education, but add an emphasis on character transformation and the necessary ministry skills to make a world of difference for the name of Christ.

As you surf the pages of the CIU website, you will see the fabric that makes us distinct. Our motto: "to know Him and to make Him known" clearly captures the tapestry God has woven since 1923. If your heart resonates with what you read and you would like to know more about CIU, please let us know how we may serve you.

Columbia International University is a Christian institution of higher education located in Columbia, South Carolina. The university is recognized for its emphasis upon spiritual formation, biblical authority and world evangelization.

CIU began from modest beginnings in 1923 when it was founded as Columbia Bible School. The original purpose was to provide a two year course of study in biblical studies for local mill workers. By 1927, the decision was made to convert the school into a college and begin offering bachelor’s degrees in Bible. A location in downtown Columbia was established and the first dean (later president) of the college was chosen. The school continued to grow and eventually required a new campus. The college was relocated in 1960 to its present facility on Monticello Road. It was during the 1960’s that the institution’s longest serving president, Robertson McQuilkin, son of the first dean of Columbia Bible College, was inaugurated. During this period, the institution also changed its name to Columbia Bible College and Seminary. The name was changed yet again in 1994 to Columbia International University to highlight the growing educational mission as well as to demonstrate a commitment to preparing students from all parts of the world for global Christian service.

In 1913 Miss Emily Dick filled in for her sister, who taught a Sunday school class in one of the mill villages in Columbia, SC. She became concerned for the spiritual and material needs of the workers and their families, so she attended Moody Bible Institute for more training in the Bible. After her return, she realized that a local Bible institute was needed in order to train those who wanted more Bible education.

In 1918, Mrs. T. Hal Dick, Margaret Childs, Miss Pamela Moore, Mrs. Elizabeth Tanant and Mrs. Pearl Stone joined Emily in praying for a Bible school. Mary Dibble later joined this band of "praying women" as they looked to John 15:7. One of the first things they prayed for was a man of God who would lead the new work.1

Robert C. McQuilkin had his own dreams of becoming a missionary sink to the bottom of the New York harbor, when the ship he booked passage on burned at anchor. The Lord used this incident to re-direct R.C.'s plans, and he soon joined up with Charles Trumbull and the influential Sunday School Times. Through the mentoring of Trumball, Mr. McQuilkin began to experience the victorious Christian life and began teaching this message throughout the East Coast.

In 1921, after returning to speak in Columbia for the third time, he was asked to become the dean of a new "Bible institute" that was coming together. After several months of prayer he wrote an acceptance letter to the president of the board and commented excitedly, "What a mighty power for missions and for soul-winning evangelism the school may be!"
