Lipscomb University seeks to be a Christian university - intentionally, courageously and graciously. From its founding in 1891, it has consistently pursued a mission that combines challenging academic preparation with the dynamic spiritual development of its students. Not all universities embrace such a calling, but at Lipscomb, it is the priority and it will continue to be. It is important that those who wish to join the Lipscomb community embrace its mission, and, through their work and through their lives, reflect a commitment to it. While the faculty-staff handbook includes specific policies and behavioral guidelines for employees, more important is the calling employees feel to live and work in ways that are consistent with the Christian community we seek to be. At the end of the day, it will not be policies or guidelines that create an excellent place to work, but rather extraordinary people who claim the mission of a unique institution. Please share your answers to the following questions about your contribution to the mission of Lipscomb University.
