Our Mission

Building on a rich Presbyterian heritage and a pioneering spirit, Tusculum University provides an active and experiential education within a caring Christian environment to inspire civic engagement, enrich personal lives, and equip career-ready professionals.

Tusculum University is dedicated to providing our students with many avenues for experience in academics, fun and meaningful activities outside the classroom, and faith through instilling a sense of belonging, spirituality, responsibility, resourcefulness, and courage. We are committed to welcoming students who are looking for a home away from home and molding them into attentive, thoughtful, and successful citizens of the community.

Through their academic program, the strength of their relationships, and the wisdom of their college and personal experience, graduates can expect to leave Tusculum feeling prepared for the world that awaits them. Current students can expect to be nurtured and supported as they strengthen their character through the mission of the institution, which lies deeply rooted in civic virtues, faith, and tradition.

Tusculum’s mission and an active, engaged learning environment work together in an integrated way to prepare citizens for effective participation in professional, public, and personal life.
