Founded on a Catholic tradition of serving God’s creation, Christian Brothers University is built on the premise of equality and inclusion for all. Located in lively Memphis, Tennessee, the school was first established in the mid-19th century, but did not truly hit its stride until the mid-20th century, when it offered its first engineering programs and became a full-fledged university.
Today, as a Lasallian institution, networked across the nation, CBU not only has a diverse student population, but a diverse offering of degrees. It has four schools, plus a dedicated College of Adult and Professional Studies: the Rosa Deal School of Arts, the School of Business, Gadomski School of Engineering and the School of Sciences.
The Lasallian philosophy is a mission-based education, derived from providing services to all, especially the poor and underserved. Through innovative and holistic approaches, these spiritual educational experiences are all a part of the Brothers of the Christian Schools.
