Ignite the Vision

The student body at Cumberland University continues to grow and thrive. With our enrollment numbers increasing every year, we must actively work to expand and transform our campus to meet the needs of our students. We have the opportunity to enhance the Cumberland experience for all students with Ignite the Vision, a major gifts initiative, with a working goal of $1.7 million to enhance, transform, and inspire Cumberland University.

This strategic program will focus on four key initiatives: The Phoenix Scholars, The Phoenix Marching Band, The Phillips Dining Hall Expansion, and The Memorial Lawn Enhancements. Each initiative will directly impact our students and ensure Cumberland remains a top competitor in the higher-education market.


“At Cumberland University, you’re not just a number. You’re part of a family who cares about your success and well-being even after you’ve graduated. The friendships and relationships I’ve made here are ones I will always treasure. I’m proud to be a Phoenix!”
