Opportunities:
Thanks to dedicated alumni and friends, Culver-Stockton College's mission continues to be ensured through annual and planned gift support. Annual Gifts to the C-SC Fund help in a variety of ways.  Such gifts help fund: 1) Greatest Priorities, 2) Academic Excellence, 3) Scholarships, 4) Student Life, 5) Community Enrichment, and 6) Library.  Planned gifts are a way for alumni and friends to remember Culver-Stockton College through a future gift arrangement such as:  1) Making a provision in your will, 2) Naming the college as a beneficiary and/or owner of a life insurance policy, 3) Through a charitable remainder trust.  In making these types of gifts, one can also specify how these funds are to be used, i.e., general college endowment, establishing an endowed scholarship in your name, for a specific building project on campus, or to be unrestricted, which allows the college to appropriate funds to address the greatest priorities on campus.

Culver-Stockton College

Mission:
The mission of Culver-Stockton College is to provide students of promise a superb education within an active learning community founded upon integrity and the best values of faith and the human spirit.
History:
In the 1850s, D. Pat Henderson and other Disciples of Christ leaders were interested in creating an institution for the education of male and female students. In 1853, they were granted a charter by the state of Missouri to establish Christian University, in which classes began in 1855.  Mr. Robert Stockton and Mrs. Mary Culver of St. Louis played a vital role in the school's history with generous donations for residence halls, a new gymnasium, and grants for faculty salaries. In recognition of their generosity, the trustees directed in 1917 that the name be changed from Christian University to Culver-Stockton College.  In recent years, Culver-Stockton College has integrated advanced computer technology into all classrooms, labs, and residence halls, and has demonstrated its commitment to learning with a state-of-the-art science center, and has built an endowment that will assure a high level of academic quality that will continue into the future.
Highlights:
Academics can be an exciting adventure at Culver-Stockton College.  EXP@CSC is our innovative four-year program of studies and experiences that prepares you for career success like no other college or university in the nation.  EXP@CSC integrates our innovative curriculum with the college’s outstanding co-curricular programs.  Our students are continually learning and growing by living on campus in residence hall or Greek houses, participating on athletic teams, serving as leaders in student organization, performing in musical or theatrical events, exhibiting their visual art in our campus gallery, working on campus…and a host of other student involvement opportunities.  Not only does this approach expand the educational experience, it also enhances career possibilities for students who earn a C-SC degree.  Students can choose majors from a total of 26 academic programs and preprofessional programs in physical therapy, occupational therapy, law and health sciences.  As a liberal arts institution, we integrate fine arts, performing arts, humanities, natural and social sciences to provide a platform for well-rounded graduates.  We offer more than 30 clubs and organizations and 11 intercollegiate sports.
