The 700 faculty members at BIHE largely consists of professionals who once held teaching positions at government run universities in Iran, but because of their affiliation with the Bahá’í Faith and the increasing systematic oppression of the Bahá’ís in that country, they later lost their jobs.

This remarkable team of volunteers, in their capacity as professors, have tirelessly devoted their expertise over the last three decades to the development and implementation of a top notch university curriculum which now consists of 38 degree programs (5 Associate, 18 Undergraduate and 15 graduate).

ImageAs the online capabilities of BIHE expands, so too does its Affiliated Global Faculty (AGF), a growing international body of top quality professors who volunteer their time and expertise to the ongoing growth of BIHE.   

The AGF is comprised of professors holding Ph.D degrees who work and reside in North America, Europe, Australia, Africa, Latin America and Asia.  Indeed, this is one of the unique and impressive features of this university. The Affiliated Global Faculty was created in response to the emerging needs of BIHE including an increasing number of courses being offered in English, and the desire to achieve internationally accepted educational standards.  Currently, the functions of an AGF member could include:   

  • Offering advice on curriculum and course content
  • Development of new courses
  • Teaching existing/new courses remotely over the internet
  • Delivering onsite seminars and lectures in the form of a visiting professor
  • Helping to establish formal relationships with universities outside of Iran for recognition and acceptance of BIHE courses and degrees
