Counselors & Parents

You've prepared for this moment. So have we.

Of course, you want your student to choose an institution where they will thrive academically and be prepared for future success. But you aren't simply helping them pick which institution will be listed on their diploma—you’re deciding which campus culture will shape who they become.

That's where we come in. Lipscomb University is a premier, private, Christian university located in Nashville, Tennessee. Year after year, we earn top rankings for our diverse academic offerings, which encompass more than 145 areas of study in nearly 80 majors. Through challenging curriculum, service learning initiatives and global learning programs, we equip students to become leaders—not only in their professions, but in an ever-changing society.

You want to know that you're sending your child to an environment that is supportive and nurturing. This is why I'm at a place like Lipscomb. — Alan Bradshaw, Physics Department Chair and Parent of 2015 Lipscomb Graduate

Supporting futures.

We are committed to providing a quality education from a faith-based, service-focused approach. Our faculty devotes substantial time and energy to shepherding students both in and out of the classroom—from advising appointments to afternoon coffee. On top of that, our small class sizes maintain a close-knit academic community.

Our students are compassionate leaders and driven professionals. Lipscomb leverages expansive organizational relationships to connect students to viable internships and competitive employment opportunities. Graduates have a long history of achieving their professional goals as part of communities in Nashville and around the world: our alumni have gone on to work for thousands of companies, from Warner Music to SpaceX.
