September 2015 was an historic month for Hope International University (HIU) and Nebraska Christian College (NC) as each took another important step toward becoming one institution.

On September 11, the NC trustees voted unanimously to become part of HIU. Then, on September 25, HIU’s board of trustees also voted unanimously to proceed. The merger is pending approval from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC), HIU’s regional accrediting association.

If all goes according to plan, NC will become a part of HIU sometime in 2016 and the task of integrating the two schools will begin. HIU President, Dr. John L. Derry, will assume leadership of the merged institutions.
