About Dallas International University

Dallas International University offers specialized education that is unlike many other colleges and institutions. Our experienced faculty offer education in the fields of linguistics, language & culture learning, anthropology, literacy, translation, world arts, and international service. Our 1900+ alumni are using this education to make an impact around the world!

Experienced Faculty

Many students are surprised to come on campus and find themselves asked to call their professors by their first name.  Our faculty are some of the most experienced in their field, but they believe that each student is a future colleague.

“DIU faculty members bring a wide range of practical field experience to share in the classroom, in addition to their academic expertise acquired through advanced studies. This contributes to a superior education, built on a strong academic foundation and empowered by practical understanding of how languages work. Our faculty members are available to discuss with students the personal aspects of field work as well. You are cordially invited to join the adventure of learning to communicate better cross-culturally.”

Alumni Impact

Our alumni are impacting communities around the world! They are translators, linguists, literacy workers, language surveyors, Scripture engagement consultants, ethnomusicologists, and cross-cultural workers in a variety of fields.  They have used their DIU training to serve with over 60 organizations in more than 80 different countries around the world.

“As a faculty member, I think of my former students with immense pride and joy because of their commitment, capability and depth.  DIU alumni are in high demand as advisors, trainers and leaders because they are already familiar with both real practical field issues and scholarly thinking in their domains. I would be glad to work with any DIU alum that I know.”
