PIU is working hard to move toward salaried positions but is not currently in a position to “hire” most of our faculty and staff. The majority of those who work at PIU are in full time Christian service and have raised their own support as missionaries or have volunteered their time in order to serve here. This is because our college’s vision from the start has been centered around offering a quality, transformational, accessible college education with a biblical world view to people in the Pacific region who might not otherwise be able to afford one.
