Founded in 1853 by members of the Disciples of Christ church, Culver-Stockton College has more than 160 years of educational and historical experience – surviving the Civil War and Great Depression, promoting social equality and incorporating technological advances – always striving to reach new levels of excellence.

We pride ourselves on the experiential advantages we provide our students like our the 12-week + 3-week academic semester calendar, implemented in the fall of 2008, which includes a 12-week semester of classes with a 3-week time frame for a single class, internship or Travel Study program.

Culver-Stockton’s 140-acre campus overlooking the Mississippi River is home to 1,000 students who choose from more than 80 majors and minors. Students can also create their own major, truly making their options limitless.

On average, for every 14 students, C-SC has one faculty member, with 71 percent holding the highest degree in their field.

Wildcat athletes have exceptional leadership, including a three-time volleyball Olympian.

Students are involved with community service, the student-run newspaper and radio station, mock trial, Greek life, fine art productions and more than 50 other student groups.

Attending C-SC means you join a network of students, faculty and alumni who care about you because you are now a Wildcat.


The mission of Culver-Stockton College is to prepare students of promise for a dynamic world through our distinctive experiential curriculum within a supportive learning community founded upon the best values of faith and the human spirit.


“We See the Future” our five year strategic plan, has an evergreen nature, meaning it is a living document that remains a five year strategic plan over time, as we complete one year we add another. Also, as we see opportunities for new direction due to the changing academic climate, our plan is flexible and can be revised, adjusted or modified to ensure the College remains at the forefront of the Student Experience. In addition, there will be an annual review to revise goals, develop new goals and share results.
