Article About PIU in the Marianas Variety


Today’s Marianas Variety newspaper had a very nice article about PIU today as we officially introduce our new VP of Advancement and Provost, former Guam senator, Dr. Sam Mabini. The article also contains a good overview of our programs and history of the school. Below are a few quotes from the article. You can read the original article on the Marianas Variety web page. I also post a picture of me, Sam and Nino, that was taken by Samantha while the MV photographer was out here yesterday afternoon.

“In response to the changing needs of the island communities in which it serves, PIU is expanding its course offerings, its degree offerings, and its vision to be a leader throughout Guam, Micronesia and the Pacific Region in providing accessible, transformational, and quality higher education,” said Dr. Sam Mabini, the university’s interim provost and academic vice president.

“For 37 years PIU has been the leader in providing biblical education to the people of Micronesia and now to an expanding circle of people in the Western Pacific, the United States and the rest of the world,” said the former senator, who assumed the university post on Sept. 13.

“We are proud that students enrolled at PIU genuinely get a rich multi-cultural experience, and develop deep relationships, through meaningful interactions with the student body, faculty and staff of PIU,” she added.

Thank you, Marianas Variety News Staff!
