JIU IS THE PIONEER IN ONLINE LEARNING. Our founder and chancellor, Glenn R. Jones, has devoted much of his life to his passionately held belief that education should be available to everyone, everywhere. In the nascence of the Internet, Jones foresaw the potential and started JIU in 1993 – the first university anywhere to exist completely online. In 1999 JIU became the first fully online university in the U.S. to be accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association
