Ambassador College was founded in 1947 by Herbert W. Armstrong for the purpose of recapturing true values. Today the college's educational extension programs reach into most major nations. Ambassador is not molded in the traditional image of conventional universities and colleges. It is free from the shackles of tradition. It is not plagued by student protests, violence, drugs and immorality. The college places primary emphasis on education of the whole individual and not of the intellect alone. Ambassador College is a unique educational character-building institution. It teaches not only how to earn a living, but how to live. Ambassador students are taught the missing dimension in education-the underlying purpose and real meaning of human life, the worthwhile values, the basic laws of success. Students are given individual attention in the development of character, culture and personality.
