Lipscomb University's College of Education, named by the Tennessee Higher Education Commission's Teacher Preparation Program Report Card as best in the state at preparing teachers, is a leader in the movement to support educational progress in Tennessee.
Lipscomb is in year two of the innovative transformation partnership with Nashville’s under-performing Cameron Middle School as it transitions to a charter school. The Cameron partnership showcases the College’s ability to train an entire in-service faculty in best teaching practices focused on raising achievement for all students in a low-performing school.
The College is routinely called upon to provide professional development sessions and mentoring across the state.
Lipscomb partners with Teach for America as a host institute for licensure and master’s programming.
Lipscomb recently partnered with Metro-Nashville Public Schools to train over 130 teachers in best practices for educating English-language learners.
The College of Education has received more than $2 million dollars of competitive grant monies to strengthen current P-12 math and science instruction for local in-service teachers, and partnering with local schools to provide exceptional professional development over the past few years.
The Nashville Chamber of Commerce has joined with Lipscomb’s College of Education to coordinate its Education 2020 Speaker Series with the College’s well-respected Teaching, Learning and Leading Forum.
The Ayers Foundation has selected Lipscomb as the recipient of a $1 million gift to support its College of Education’s strategic plan to establish an institute that serves the teachers of the State of Tennessee.
