Expand our Capacity

Goal: $135.5 Million

We must improve and add to our infrastructure in order to welcome, house, and educate the growing number of students who desire a university that is faithful to Scripture and marked by academic excellence. This distinctive mission, by God’s generous grace, has resulted in transformational growth — even during a time when many universities have experienced declining enrollments.

In 2019, we began a 10-year campus master plan that will change the look of Cedarville’s campus, enabling us to increase the number and scope of academic programs and enlarge the University’s capacity to transform the lives of undergraduate and graduate students for the Word of God and the Testimony of Jesus Christ. And, through God’s provision, we embark on these projects from a position of financial strength, unencumbered by debt.
