Office of Neighborhood, Community and Government Relations
Lipscomb University’s Office of Neighborhood, Community and Government Relations exists to be a liaison with our neighbors and community groups as well as governmental organizations and leaders in Nashville to cultivate and strengthen relationships, to share information and to develop effective outreach and service initiatives.
We hope you will visit this site often for the latest updates, news and information about what’s happening at Lipscomb and around the neighborhood. You will find information about construction projects, community initiatives, events on campus and more.
Meet the director
The office is led by Amanda Martin. Amanda comes to Lipscomb after having served the State of Tennessee as a senior rural policy advisor for the Department of Economic and Community Development. For the past five years, she has worked with multiple state, federal and local agencies, developing extensive knowledge of government processes and fostering a network of professional relationships. In her role with the state, Amanda spearheaded efforts to address the lack of broadband access and encourage rural economic development. She began her career in state government as a Governor’s Management Fellow, a prestigious two-year fellowship awarded to some of the nation’s best and brightest to give them the opportunity to serve the state and its citizens. As part of this fellowship, Amanda worked in the Office of Customer Focused Government and alongside the state’s top executive leaders. Amanda graduated from Lipscomb in May 2011 with a major in political science and a minor in German, and earned a Juris Doctor degree from Pepperdine University School of Law in May 2014. Amanda is an avid traveler and aspiring bookworm.
