Cumberland University is an institution where students come to learn, grow, and determine their path to success. They come for different reasons, but all stay because of the caring environment offered at Cumberland. There are many individuals who not only make students’ experience at Cumberland possible they make them unique. These caring people are the donors who support the University. Just as they help give students a truly unique experience at Cumberland, each CU supporter has a different story, and all selflessly find their own distinctive way to reach out and touch another’s life.
