Allow us to welcome you to a non-traditional learning experience from start to finish. No campuses are offered as we urge that learning settings occurs anywhere a learner allows themselves to grow through experiences.
School of Continuing Education

Continuing education credits are offered for licensed professionals, many of whom hold graduate or undergraduate degrees. We offer person-centered graduate education in this niche. Unlicensed individuals may matriculate in courses of study designed for their edification. For more on the School of Continuing Education click here or on a button at the bottom of pages you visit.

                 On Graduate School & Research Centers

AMIU offers person-centered graduate education, providing scholars with opportunities to earn a degree through diverse learning methods. We recognize that acquiring knowledge is not limited by time needed to learn, age, or a personal, national or geographic location. Individuals must complete a person-centered degree plan.Educational goals can all be achieved without leaving one's home or work. We agree scholars are challenged to master the learning demanded by a career field of their choice.

AMIU's founders began offering distance education in 1983. Continuing education courses were first offered to US  professionals in 1981 and to Latin American professionals in 1995. It is our intent to offer state of the art distance learning methods using advanced communication technologies and an educational delivery system that follow practices developed by Ivy League University educators who began the US distance  learning movement in the early 1960s.

AMIU was incorporated in Indiana in 1997. University affiliated professionals expanded to Latin American promptly based on market analysis and educational needs assessments; and an East Asia Extension was attempted. The educational delivery system of the AMIU School of Continuing Education is based on practical course by course methods developed in house.


By employing distance-learning methods, highly motivated and self-directed learners may pursue and complete a graduate degree from any part of the world. Neither AMIU degree candidates nor faculty are campus-bound.  This means creative AMIU scholars may pursue challenging research opportunities and/or graduate degrees supervised by an intellectually challenging faculty and mentors. Each student must select competent professionals from his or her chosen field of study; these may come from any part of the world rather than be limited by a faculty of a single university or work setting.

         There are three primary criteria for admission to the Graduate School.

1.     Evidence of motivation to work toward a graduate or post-graduate degree;

2.    Evidence of ability to do graduate work;

3.    Evidence of ability to become a self-directed learner.


We are pleased to observe renown US professionals have attended  distance-learning institutions before they became accredited by a regional association. In that regard we constantly pursue self studies designed to strengthen Socratic and Confucian learning experiences we offer. These actions are taken from the premises of a progressive religious institution focused on the economical challenges that our scholars face.

Presumptions Upheld:

Distance learning is our means for sharing a vision and meeting educational needs worldwide. Conscientious learners and researchers of stature conduct research and may earn an advanced degree; as such we recognize credible learning experiences.  But the Board of Trustees upholds an oath to deny privileges to any charlatan holding themselves out as  a University rep.

We apply a non-traditional learning model, which was first launched by learned US professionals in 1964, and similar to the Open University of London. Renowned leaders who developed today's distance education  are described by Roy Fairfield (1977) in his book Person-Centered Graduate Education. Those educators were inspired by the wisdom of Socrates and Confucius who centuries ago espoused learning from non-traditional fountains of knowledge that have had an immense affects on our world. They certainly did not do this at institutions accredited in the United States, Mexico, Canada, Europe or East Asia. Yet noted historical contributions arising there from had lasting implications for the past, the present and the future. As we close 2006, distance education has exploded in North America and Europe all because of the high costs and high needs, but few universities reach out to answer the vast needs of third world where learned persons among the impoverished have higher demands and even greater limitations than any affluent nations do. We are especially open to  scholars from the third world who work mentors to grow degree plans and graduate committee persons whom they select. Our School of Continuing Education is tied to an Approved Continuing Education Sponsor.

Having begun his career as an entrepreneur, international educator and community developer in the 1960s, one of our founders – Kenneth Koym - worked 42 years in the field of mental health, forensic investigation and research in the US, Mexico, Central America and East Asia. In 2004, he became the legal representative of a private Petén, Guatemala-based Maya Museum. Based on his many experiences he urges, “An urgent call exists for learned credentials outside the US. This makes it critical for advanced professionals in the third world to gain the benefits of non-traditional learning methodologies. Why? In those foreign countries, the cost of building meeting rooms, libraries, laboratories, auditoriums and other elaborate facilities is prohibitive.”

In response to this call, the University brings with it a non-governmental organization (NGO) - the Dialogue-Producing Consortium (founded in 1977 http://dialoguemakers.org). This NGO holds foundation status and we hope one day it may be feasible for learners and researchers to dream and realize answers to their dreams, i.e., to gain grants or stipends, and be duly recognized for making defensible original contributions to a duly respected field of study that they choose with the assistance they did not have before registering with this University.


It is the Board of Directors intent to again grant degrees after faculty of stature can be retained under rigorous educational standards. This limitation does not affect Coaching Entrepreneurs, Indigenous R&D Institute, Schools of Continuing Education, Sacred Beliefs & Practices or Business.
