College of Education

The best educators maintain the mindset of students: always curious, diligent, and imaginative. At Lipscomb’s College of Education, we stay nimble and up-to-date so we can prepare 21st-century educators to be flexible thinkers and unrelenting problem-solvers—so they can prepare their students for the 22nd century.


Lipscomb is one of only four teacher-preparation colleges in the U.S. to receive the highest four-star rating from the National Council of Teacher Quality. We attribute that, in large part, to our emphasis on community engagement and cultural understanding—our graduates gain the skills and the sensitivity to improve students’ lives all over the world.
