CU History

Charisma University was founded in March 2011 by Prof. Dr. PeterChris Okpala. The University is fully recognized by the Turks and Caicos Islands Ministry of Education as a degree-granting institution for Associate’s degree, Bachelor’s degree, Master’s degree, and Doctorate along with Certificate programs.

Charisma University is a Turks and Caicos Islands non-profit private higher institution approved by the Turks and Caicos Islands Ministry of Education through its Higher Education Advisory Board to offer online and on-campus degree and certificate programs.

In July of 2023, Charisma University received the necessary authorization from the Board of Regents to offer post-secondary degree programs in Montana, the United States of America. Charisma University satisfies the requirements of Montana Code Annotated § 20-25-107 and Board of Regents Policy 221, which regulate educational institutions’ award of post-secondary degrees in the State of Montana. The Montana University System, Office of the Commissioner of Higher Education, is located at 560 N.

The university’s name, Charisma University, takes root in the word “charisma” (n; Theol*) –an extraordinary power, such as the ability to work miracles, granted by the Holy Spirit. We believe that an individual coming to our University receives an “extraordinary power” to learn and to develop one’s self in cooperation with the Creator:

”A wise man will hear and increase learning, and a man of understanding will attain wise counsel.”
–Proverbs 1:5 (NKJV).
