The mission of Cumberland University is to provide a contemporary liberal arts
education to students seeking a high-quality, personalized college experience,
which will allow them not only to have a successful and productive career, but
to thrive intellectually, professionally, personally, and spiritually for a lifetime.
Cumberland University has a long and rich history, stretching back nearly 170
years. But Cumberland’s focus is not on its past, it’s on the future. It’s not about
the governors who’ve attended – it’s about helping students govern their lives.
It’s not about the glorious names of the past – it’s about naming students’ futures.
Cumberland is dedicated to doing the little things well, and that’s it's biggest and
most powerful difference.
Cumberland’s small size means more time devoted to students. Cumberland is
big on student success and devoted to the smallest details to equip students to
succeed in tomorrow’s marketplace. So think small. Big things await students at
Cumberland University.
