Welcome from the President

I would like to invite you to explore the student-centric learning community of American InterContinental University (AIU). As the University’s President, it's an honor to build upon AIU's strong foundation and help students realize their full academic potential.

For 50 years, AIU has dedicated itself to helping students grow personally, professionally and academically. We strive to deliver excellence to our students in instruction, service and curriculum. AIU’s degree programs are designed to blend focused knowledge with practical, skills-based experiences you can leverage as you prepare for the challenges and opportunities that may be found in today's competitive job market.

AIU has been recognized for its innovative programs and approach to fostering student success. For instance, our online bachelor’s degree programs were ranked on U.S. News & World Report’s Best Online Bachelor’s Programs listing for 2019, and our online M.Ed. program was also ranked by U.S. News in its Best Online Graduate Education Programs listing.

In 2020, AIU welcomed Trident University International (now “Trident at AIU”) into our ever-growing learning community. Trident shares AIU’s dedication and focus on providing exceptional online educational experiences and includes nearly 27,000 alumni. Additionally, Trident’s diversity in student population and curricula supports and enhances AIU’s core mission of excellence.

Together, we have an incredible team of staff and faculty committed to serving students and helping them reach their educational goals. We aim to empower our students and ensure they receive a quality education.

As the University begins another chapter, I believe the next 50 years will be our best. We pledge to invest in the relationships with our students, and in our new affiliation with Trident at AIU, in order to realize AIU’s calling: Celebrating the Past, Inspiring the Future.

At AIU, our students’ success is our success. With over 144,000 degrees awarded since 1970 and a growing support network of administration, faculty and staff, AIU will continue to thrive for years to come. I hope that you’ll join us and take part in our pursuit of excellence.
