In 1888 a group of Baptist Ministers founded a small college in Kentucky known as Williamsburg Institute. In 1913, following the acquisition of Highland College, Cumberland College was born.
The institution has produced two governors, five military generals, an admiral, five college and university presidents, a Congressman, ministers, missionaries, legislators, judges and more.
Undaunted by wars, economic depressions, social unrest and natural disasters, University of the Cumberlands has continuously served Appalachia for 125 years. Now, thanks to the welcome addition of online learning, the University’s doors are open to students from all over the world.
