From the President

          Hello and welcome to Campbellsville University, an award winning Kentucky-based Christian university of more than 3,700 students. CU is among America’s premier Christian universities where we’re preparing servant leaders toward the goals established in CU’s Vision 2025. The commitment to student learning at CU is based on four core values:

                                           • provide academic excellence through quality programs;
                                           • offer an environment conducive for student success;
                                           • practice strong, effective stewardship;           
                                           • strive to be a caring, Christ-centered community of learners.

          Each and every day the faculty, staff and coaches help students find their calling and develop the skills it will take to succeed in their chosen fields. Results can be seen around the world where CU graduates live and work, putting to use the experience they gained at CU from 63 undergraduate options, 17 master’s degrees, five postgraduate areas and eight pre-professional programs from which to choose. I’d like to share a bit about each of our special areas – the words in blue indicate a clickable link directly to that section of our website:

          The School of Nursing program prepares the graduate to work and practice in a variety of medical offices and clinical settings. The program’s goal is to graduate competent, qualified, caring and compassionate nurses.

          The Carver School of Social Work offers a vibrant undergraduate program where students are learning to serve God and society through fundraising and humanitarian efforts such as Cardboard Nation, the Taylor County Ministerial Association Homeless Shelter, family services in Tanzania, Africa, community outreach in Esmeralda, Mexico and an engaged Master’s in Counseling program offered at the main campus and the Louisville extension campus.

          The School of Business and Economics trains managers in Christian team building and strategic thinking for leadership in the rapidly changing, technologically advanced global marketplace. Students may enroll in either the MBA (Master of Business Administration) or the MAOL (Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership). There are five specialty tracks.

          The School of Education is based on empowerment for learning. As a result of program experiences, students will be equipped with the knowledge, skills and dispositions to create a healthy classroom climate in which their own students can learn and grow.

          The School of Theology offers various programs ranging from Pastoral Ministries, Sports Ministries, to Biblical Studies. The School of Theology professors have spent years following God and serving Him in their teaching fields before they came to CU.

          The College of Arts and Sciences combines a strong core curriculum with a wide range of major programs. Access to highly respected instructors helps students prepare for professional and graduate programs and for a variety of jobs in the professional world.

          The School of Music staff and faculty are as diverse as the students they teach. Coming from various parts of the world’s diverse learning environments they provide students with skills and knowledge to perform in whatever field of music they choose.

          Campbellsville University Athletics promotes champions of characters with winning attitudes both on and off the field or court. Equipping athletes to be champions in all aspects of their lives whither they go on to be professional athletes or take careers in other fields athletes will be equipped to be victorious in all that they do.

          It will be my pleasure to help you schedule a visit to campus and show you in person all that makes me so proud as a leader. Please call, email or write at your convenience. For a tour from where you are, please visit our About Campbellsville page.


Most Cordially,


Michael V. Carter, President
