Welcome from our Chancellor

"On behalf our our entire staff, I welcome you to peruse these pages and learn about what God is doing at Ambassador International University."


Dr. Kris Bjorgen and wife, Jennifer, has been involved with the development of AIU since it's beginning in 2005.  He has designed and helped construct many of the buildings on campus as well as assist in training many of the staff.  He has also written or edited much of the curriculum on the bachelor's and master's level.  Dr. Kris is the chancellor of the university.


Dr. Kris and Jennifer live in South Carolina most of the time, but travel to the campus 2 - 3 times per year to teach at the university as well as assist in the overall administration of the campus.  He is in daily contact with the school administration. 

"We are thrilled at what God has accomplished at AIU and look forward to the great things He will do in the future!"
