Phoenix Family.

Welcome, Phoenix Family!

With over 8,000 active alumni, our Alumni Association has a number of opportunities for alumni to stay connected to their alma mater such as The 1842 Society, CU Book Club, Mentorship Program, or serving on the CU Alumni Association Board. If you have any questions or would like more information on how you can be involved, feel free to email me at or give me a call at (615)-547-1362.

Go Phoenix!

Student Alumni Ambassadors

The Student Alumni Ambassador (SAA) program builds relationships among students and alumni to create a culture of philanthropy at Cumberland University. The SAA program focuses on providing opportunities to acquire and sharpen leadership and communication skills while building their personal and professional network of alumni, donors, and other student leaders on campus.

Ways to Give


The 1842 Society

Whether it’s $18.42 or $1,842, gifts to The 1842 Society support the Pay it Forward Scholarship, which is awarded to students that need financial assistance for books and fees. CU alumni and supporters have raised over $13,000 for the Pay it Forward Scholarship through The 1842 Society membership dues.
