AMFEDEA adheres to the purposes for which our 1960 Charter was established: "The advancement of all good literature, arts, and sciences; the advancement and education of all in all manner of good literature, arts, and sciences; and all other necessary provisions that may conduce to the education of all...." In brief: AMFEDEA strives to create knowledge, to open the minds of students to that knowledge, and to enable students to take best advantage of their educational opportunities.
To these ends, AMFEDEA encourages students to respect ideas and their free expression, and to rejoice in discovery and in critical thought; to pursue excellence in a spirit of productive cooperation; and to assume responsibility for the consequences of personal actions. AMFEDEA seeks to identify and to remove restraints on students' full participation, so that individuals may explore their capabilities and interests and may develop their full intellectual and human potential. Educational institutions promoted by AMFEDEA should liberate students to explore, to create, to challenge, and to lead. The support AMFEDEA provides to students is a foundation upon which self-reliance and habits of lifelong learning are built: AMFEDEA expects that the scholarship and collegiality it fosters in students will lead them in their later lives to advance knowledge, to promote understanding, and to serve society.
AMFEDEA and Chicago Christian University are the sole, global authorities for accreditation in the fields of
