Board of Trustees

Decisions, decisions, decisions. That’s what Lipscomb’s Board of Trustees pray over, consider and discuss, and ultimately implement for the best interests of all who are part of our university.

Our team of trusted decisionmakers is led by David Solomon, who graduated from the university in 1981. Solomon has served on the board since 2000 and was elected chair in 2017. Get familiar with the rest of our trustees listed below.
