Educating the World

Welcome to TNIU! 

The New International University (TNIU) was launched by World Impact Network in pursuit of offering affordable, quality higher education to leaders in the emerging world, who may not otherwise be able to access an American education. TNIU's Administration, Faculty, and Staff stand firm in their mission to educate students within their individual contexts and communities thereby positioning these leaders to give back locally through social and political engagement and development.

TNIU's degree programs are best suited for students who desire to academically engage with professors and peers through an online platform, who are self-motivated to succeed, and who look forward to fulfilling God's call to ministry irrespective of economic background or political position. TNIU aims to equip students with operational and personal skill sets, grounded with Christian values, for a diversity range of global realities. Students in all programs will have the opportunity to interact and earn credit from within their individual contexts around the globe, thus providing them unique geographic, cultural, and diverse relationships. In an age of globalization and internationalization, TNIU focuses on innovative ways to educate around the world. 

TNIU is a member of Asia Theological Association (AT), which is a requirement for accreditation, and the University is in the process of finalizing the self-study required for full accreditation with ATA.
