The mission of Cumberland University is to create a learning community of distinction through a partnership among its students, faculty, staff and the larger community. The development of the whole student -- intellectual, spiritual, psycho-social, physical, creative -- is emphasized in preparation for successful and responsible personal living, for productive economic participation, and for constructive citizenship. Learning opportunities are offered in the liberal arts, selected pre-professional, professional, graduate programs, and Continuing Education programs. Students are facilitated to develop a pattern of lifelong learning by learning to learn and by developing critical thinking, reasoning, and communication abilities. Commitment is made to developing personal and social responsibility through an exploration of an ethical/moral basis.
