Dean of Student Life
Prior to his work as the Associate Dean of Campus Life, Smith served as the Chapel Coordinator, Assistant Head Resident of High Rise, and Head Resident of Sewell Hall. He earned a B.A. and M.A. in Biblical studies from Lipscomb University and a doctorate in Higher Education Leadership from Union University.

Sam’s enthusiasm for student development and excitement for true Kingdom living drive his passion for his work at Lipscomb.
