Message from the President


At Ambrose we are committed to the education and formation of men and women for service. But what does this mean? It means that whatever your chosen path, be it business, biology, or biblical studies, you will be taught by faculty who integrate faith with learning. It means that you will be challenged to develop not only academically, but spiritually. Personal development goes hand-in-hand with professional competence, and a life of service to Christ is highlighted through each discipline of study and through each vocational opportunity.

The Ambrose community is one of shared vision and experience. The classroom is essential, of course, but you will also share together in worship, conversation, athletics, meals together, and music and the arts. And whether you live on- or off-campus, programs for residence and commuter students will contribute to your formation while at Ambrose.

So, welcome here. Your classes will be stimulating, the conversation invigorating, and the experience, if you take advantage of all that Ambrose has to offer, life-changing.

Dr. Gordon T. Smith, PhD
President, Ambrose University
