The Cedarville University Logo and Tagline


Cedarville is known for its intentional Christ-centered focus; rigorous academics; and balanced commitment to students' personal and professional success. These distinctives are captured in the Cedarville institutional logo and tagline.


The Logo

  • A visual embodiment of several University campus buildings, the pillar represents our dedication to stability and trustworthiness.
  • The three crosses within the pillar point to the forgiveness and hope made available to us through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ.
  • The sun positioned above the pillar demonstrates our desire to be a light to the world.
  • On a more subtle note, the sun speaks of new horizons and the opportunities our students have for an exciting future.

The Tagline: Inspiring Greatness

  • What could be a more powerful mission than to inspire greatness in our students? As we seek to equip them for lifelong leadership, we emphasize that true greatness comes through humility and service. Our goal is to send out young men and women who will engage our world for Jesus Christ.
  • Greatness does not just "happen." We are intentional, rigorous, and balanced in our approach to inspiring students to achieve personal excellence and professional success.
