The best example of our impact at Lipscomb University can be seen through our alumni.
We work to instill in our graduates competency and character, knowledge and faith, service and selflessness, and an open spirit to the call of God on their lives. We prepare them with a perspective of critical thinking that continues to grow their understanding and faith as they engage in the world and communities around them. Below are some examples of alumni who are pushing boundaries, seeking innovative solutions to complex problems and experiencing and offering the grace, peace and truth of Christ in our society and the world.
