Lipscomb President Dr. Candice McQueen

Our president, senior leaders and Board of Trustees are deeply committed to the ongoing success of both our students and our community. That means they are invested in your — and each member of the Lipscomb family’s — spiritual growth, academic achievement and community involvement, and work daily to impact the community of Nashville and the world. Because at Lipscomb, leadership isn’t successful unless you’re serving others.

With their direction, guidance and faithful prayer and implementation of important decisions, students like you and the entire university community benefit. Here, you too will have the opportunity to develop into a confident leader and may go on to benefit many in your community and even the world as you respond to God’s unique purpose for your life.

Board of Trustees

David Lipscomb first held the title of chairman of the Board of Trustees, to which he and others prayerfully oversaw the institution that one day would bear his name. Today, the board continues to meet quarterly to set the institution’s long-term direction and build on our founder’s vision of training students in practical knowledge through a Christian lens.
