Welcome to Piedmont International University

A Christ-centered University committed to exceptional teaching, scholarly research, creative innovation, and professional collaboration

About Piedmont International University

Piedmont International University is located in the growing city of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Although our history and heritage date back over a hundred years – John Wesley University, a constituent college, had its origins in 1903 – PIU is very much a modern American university. 

In its current form, the university is rapidly gaining recognition for innovative partnerships with professional organizations and businesses, and pioneering the delivery of affordable but excellent degree programs. Amidst national concern about college affordability, Piedmont International University is prioritizing the creation of degree programs focused on the future of jobs. Our goal is to educate professionals who will be in high demand even as the use of automation and artificial intelligence becomes pervasive in many occupations currently reliant on humans.

We put the student first – giving them exceptional classroom teaching delivered by highly capable faculty, and opportunities for experiential learning in real workplace contexts. Outside the classroom, we prioritize the development of the whole person – by creating opportunities to experience the breadth and depth of college life in a variety of extra-curricular and sporting contexts.

We invite you to explore the richness and diversity of the intellectual community at PIU through these pages.
