International Student Services

Welcome to your home-away-from-home! With over 50 nations represented in our diverse student population, you’ll fit right in, joining many other students from around the world.

We’ve created our Office of Intercultural Development so that you, as an international student, will never be alone. It’s a resource for you and other students who want to honor and share their culture, even if you are thousands of miles away in Nashville, Tennessee.

At Lipscomb, our intentional Christian community will invest in you, both in and out of the classroom. We are here to help you succeed. Through everything we do, from academically rigorous programs to community chapels, we will prepare and launch you into your desired field—all while helping you develop personally and spiritually.

We are also here to help give your culture a voice in our campus community. Through various clubs, events and chapels—you can share your cultural traditions with peers, as well as learn about others.
