The Empower: Student Success Program provides support for students who receive conditional admission to Lipscomb through a variety of resources designed to help students make the transition from high school to college-level academics.
Students who are accepted through the Empower Program benefit from a structured system that builds confidence to achieve in the classroom, while fostering a strong community between faculty and students.
Resources of the Empower Program include:
- Designated sections of LU 1203 Lipscomb Experience, an introductory course to university-level critical thinking and cultural engagement required during the first semester at Lipscomb for all first-year students, designed to help students in the Empower Program successfully navigate their first semester
- Multiple meetings during the semester with representatives from the Academic Success Center to ensure Empower Program students are making positive progress in the classroom
- Access to tutoring services (math lab, writing studio, peer tutoring, etc.) offered by the Academic Success Center
- Advisement on how to balance an academic course load with the robust social life opportunities at Lipscomb...we know both are important!
