Campbellsville University is a comprehensive, Christian institution that offers pre-professional, undergraduate and graduate programs. The university is dedicated to academic excellence solidly grounded in the liberal arts that fosters personal growth, integrity and professional preparation within a caring environment. The university prepares students as Christian servant leaders for life-long learning, continued scholarship, and active participation in a diverse, global society.
Campbellsville University was founded in 1906 by the Russell Creek Baptist Association. The history of the University illustrates a commitment to teaching as far back as the early 1920’s when the institution provided normal school training. The University is a private, comprehensive institution affiliated with the Kentucky Baptist Convention and is open to students of all denominations.
The university’s 95-acre main campus is situated in the heartland region of Kentucky, in Campbellsville and Taylor County (pop.23,000) and is just one and one-half hours from Lexington and Louisville and two and one-half hours from Nashville. Another portion of the campus, Clay Hill Memorial Forest, is located just seven miles from campus. It is a 135-acre educational and research woodland being developed by the Division of Natural Science as a regional center for environmental education. Also, the University has several regional education centers including Hodgenville, Louisville, and Somerset.
The campus has nearly 55 major buildings, including a new School of Education building (2009). Currently, Campbellsville University has an enrollment of 3,607 students representing 99 Kentucky counties, 32 states and 34 foreign nations. With over 350 full-time faculty and staff, the faculty/student ratio is 1:13. Over 60% of the full-time faculty has the Ph.D. or highest recognized degree. A centennial celebration of Campbellsville University took place in 2006 and, three years later, the Board of Trustees approved a bold blueprint, Vision 2025: Preparing Christian Servant Leaders, for the continuing growth and development of the university over the next 15 years. Campbellsville University continues to be accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, offering 63 programs of study at the undergraduate level, 17 masters’ degrees, eight pre-professional programs, and five post-graduate areas.

As president, I take very seriously the responsibility of each student receiving the highest quality education and greatest student life experience possible while keeping tuition cost as low as possible.With the ongoing rising costs of health care, utilities, property and liability insurance, energy, and technology upgrades, the university remains committed to effective stewardship and is sensitive to the needs of our students. We will continue to work hard to provide a quality higher education experience in the years ahead.
