Africa International University is a chartered Christian university. It was started as Nairobi Evangelical Graduate School of Theology (NEGST) in 1983 by the Association of Evangelicals in Africa (AEA).
The goal was to provide training for pastors beyond the basic certificate and diploma levels. This was informed by the envisioned crisis of ‘Christo-paganism’ in African Christianity without African Biblical theologians with advanced training to provide leadership in combating this trend.
The objective was not simply for the enrichment of the scholar, but the ordinary believer in the church who was often poorly taught and vulnerable to a confused understanding of Christian truth. The establishment of Nairobi Evangelical Graduate School of Theology was seen as a viable instrument to that end.
AIU was awarded a university charter by the government of Kenya in March 2011. It has since continued to develop undergraduate programs, particularly in Business, IT, Development Studies and Counselling Psychology.
At Africa International University, we seek to be a learning community that practices loving God and neighbours with heart and mind. Our education perspective embraces disciplined, rigorous critical thinking and allows for the nurturing of relationships, creativity, and innovation. We are committed to offer education with a passion for God, God’s word and God’s world, passion for truth, integrity, service, and passion for excellence, justice, beauty, life, and creation.
Education with passion seeks to have students explore their God-given abilities and inspire their personal growth and development.
Critical to this pursuit is a core university teaching staff that strives to integrate the evangelical faith with their disciplines.
