Founders Day

Founders Day




Cummings Graduate Institute for Behavioral Studies (CGI), a private, nonprofit, accredited, online institution, was founded on October 20, 2014 in the state of Arizona and welcomed our first incoming cohort of DBH students in June 2015. As one of the only universities in the world focused exclusively on education in the growing field of integrated behavioral healthcare, CGI takes pride in celebrating the innovative vision of our founders on the anniversary of our incorporation, known as Founders Day.

October 20, 2019 marks 5 exciting years of growth and achievement for Cummings Graduate Institute for Behavioral Studies. CGI invites our community of students, alumni, faculty, staff, board members, and supporters to join us in the virtual festivities on Founders day.

At the age of 53, and after working 25 years in the field of social work returning to school was not on my bucket list, but after learning about the Cummings Graduate Institute’s online program, my hope of achieving my lifetime a doctorate degree was possible. CGI online Doctor of Behavioral Health program is innovative and relevant. It's the perfect fit for the busy professional, parent or person looking to return to school or career advancement without the fuss of unnecessary coursework. CGI understands and recognizes that there are capable professionals and that most professionals are looking to gain a competitive edge or simply looking to satisfy a personal goal.
