Legacy of Excellence Cumberland University aspires to change lives and contribute to a legacy of excellence that will influence generations to come. We do this by creating financial aid opportunities for students to have equal access to education, improving the university’s campus to support a lively learning experience and investing in our community and beyond through service learning opportunities. We believe that every student deserves access to affordable higher education and are committed to reducing student debt for our graduates. Cumberland removed significant financial barriers by partnering with the Tennessee Promise program beginning in 2015, in addition to offering a multitude of institutional scholarships and grants. As our enrollment numbers increase, so do our efforts to meet the needs of students by expanding and remodeling campus facilities. The quality of education is just as much about the space in which students learn and study as it is anything else. Some of the most recent projects include modernizing the Phillips Dining Hall, Vise Library and every residence hall. Cumberland University’s community-minded approach to everything is part of what makes the university so strong and welcoming. As the university evolves, we rely on our diverse campus to transform the community through service. With sincere passion, students dedicate over 5,000 hours each school year to local community service and service trips abroad. This intentionality in volunteering not only enhances the community but helps shape students’ experiences and lives in a positive way.
