Who We Are

Collaboration is the Key to Our Success

Working with Members to Deliver Programs Tailored to Private Higher Education


A Vision of Racial Equality

In the 1960’s, EIIA was created to help historically black colleges and universities (HBCU’s) of the Methodist Church purchase insurance during a period of extreme prejudice and racial injustice. Since that time, we have opened our programs and services to all faith inspired private colleges and universities who share a vision of racial equality.

While progress has been made over the past 50 years, we are still a long way from achieving the racial equality envisioned in the 1960’s. HBCU’s provide the spark in our young people that keeps the flames of this vision alive. EIIA is blessed to be a partner of our Historically Black Colleges and Universities and 150 faith inspired institutions and will continue to fight for the ideals they represent.

EIIA supports the drive and passion of our black communities as they strive to achieve social justice and fairness in our society.

Partnering. Preparing. Protecting.
