University officials are actively monitoring the outbreak of COVID-19, a newly-identified virus that is causing an outbreak of respiratory illness, similar to pneumonia. Information will be updated on this page and communicated to the university community (students, parents and employees should keep an eye on their email over the next few weeks!) as available and practicable, so please check back often! Also please find additional information and resources at the links on the right-hand navigation directory.

Operating Schedule

Subject to change, please check back often.

  • Employees:
    • In accordance with state and federal guidelines, we are continuing a remote work schedule for non-essential employees until further notice. We will continually monitor and assess the situation and will notify you of any changes to this schedule. Although many employees will be working from home, these are “regular” workdays and employees working remotely are expected to be “on call and available” to complete assigned work during normal business hours. Please see more specific guidelines from human resources here for additional details on working remotely. Essential employees who need to work on campus during this time will be notified by their supervisors.
  • Students:
    • Classes will continue in a remote/online for the summer. 


Fall Semester

It is the plan of the Lipscomb University Board of Trustees and administration that we safely resume in-person, on-campus teaching, learning and residential life for the fall 2020 semester. The COVID-19 task force is developing a series of plans, in conjunction with local, state, federal and public health guidelines, for opening in August. As a contingency, the team is also developing plans for start dates after Labor Day and in October in the event we have to adjust the start of the on-ground school year. We are also working with public health experts to develop new health and wellness protocols to make the Lipscomb campus as safe as possible for everyone.
