CBU fosters academic excellence in a range of programs to prepare students from all faiths and backgrounds for careers and lives informed by the Lasallian values of faith, service, and community.
Christian Brothers University is a Catholic university founded on the heritage of Lasallian education. While large enough to provide educational opportunities in the arts, business, education, engineering, and sciences, the University is small enough to promote teaching as a ministry and to provide challenging student-centered learning and personal growth. Students of diverse cultures and religious traditions are encouraged to grow in their faith. The University welcomes students into an educational community of faith and service, one that is committed to academic excellence, the betterment of society, and the care of God's creation.

As one of six Lasallian universities in the U.S., CBU emphasizes service to others. Our students are reaching out, and as they do, they acquire a different, deepened, more meaningful education, including an entire month of September of Service.CBU students across all majors can participate in professional research as undergraduates, an opportunity often reserved for graduate-level students at large institutions.
First-year students and sophomores may register for ROTC courses and receive credit toward their degrees. Enrollment does not entail any military commitment.
We can tell you about CBU, but the experience can be a verb, and this is something you'll want to experience for yourself. Tour our 75-acre campus in the heart of midtown Memphis, meet current students, chat with professors, and see where you will be living. We have lots to show you! Moreover, Memphis is a cool city too.
CBU is consistently rated as one of the best Universities in the Southeast and the nation. We are recognized for our academic excellence, engaged faculty, and caring environment.

Christian Brothers College was founded in 1871 by members of the Institute of the Brothers of Christian Schools, an international Roman Catholic religious teaching congregation. The Memphis clergy had been determined to establish Catholic education in Memphis and envisioned elementary and secondary education and college education. The Christian Brothers came to Memphis at their request, after more than a decade of previously unsuccessful efforts to persuade them to open a college in Memphis.
CBU has grown to a student population of more than 1,800 and exponentially expanded its degree offerings. Today, CBU offers bachelor's degrees in more than 60 academic majors and concentrations in the arts, business, engineering, and sciences. A dozen buildings have been added to the campus in the last 50 years, most recently the Cooper-Wilson Center for Life Sciences (2008), the Living Learning Center (2011), and the Rosa Deal School of Arts (2016).
