Welcome to VIU!
Virginia International University has always had the mission of educating students not only from the Washington, DC, metropolitan area but from all over the world. Our highly qualified faculty provides students with the necessary tools that are needed in the international community and students are consistently stimulated to develop their intellectual curiosity, critical thinking, and creativity.
As the founder and president of VIU, I have seen the rapid growth of the university throughout these years. Since it was established in 1998 as a non-profit institution for higher education, our goal has been to motivate our students to learn beyond the limits of the classroom. Attending a university near the nation’s capital allows our graduates to stay on top of current developments, to connect with professionals from their field, and to learn about innovations that influence our globalized world.
Virginia International University has been expanding its resources, facilities, schools, programs, and quality to reach students where they are. This year, we expect students from more than 100 different countries, and we are committed to continuously offering excellence in teaching, providing diverse environment, and promoting opportunities for intercultural communication, all of which have become the foundation of our students’ success.
