The office is led by Brent Culberson. A native of Nashville, Culberson has vast experience in government and community relations. Prior to his appointment at Lipscomb, he worked for the State of Tennessee, where he was director of charitable solicitations, fantasy sports and gaming in the secretary of state’s office. 

 As a member of the secretary of state’s senior management team, Culberson collaborated with members and staff of the Tennessee State General Assembly; cultivated relationships with nonprofits, foundations and government agencies; and oversaw the annual charitable solicitation registration process for nearly 14,000 organizations.

Prior to his state appointment, Culberson was a special assistant to Lipscomb President L. Randolph Lowry and was an instructor in the university’s Institute for Law, Justice & Society and its Institute for Conflict Management. In 2006, Culberson served as director of field operations for the Jim Bryson gubernatorial campaign, for which he coordinated planning, logistics and overall execution for the candidate’s three bus tours.
