Campaign Priorities

A Best in Class Academic Program

Our students and faculty are among the best in the world. To further our mission to become a premier national Christian university, we need to continue to invest in academics. This means becoming a R3: doctoral level institution with nationally recognized scholars, researchers and teachers; offering solutions to society’s problems through a Christ-driven approach; providing a multimodal education delivery system; building a global campus; and attracting the best and brightest students.

A Transformative Student Experience

Lipscomb cultivates servant leaders who are equipped to contribute in countless ways across the country and around the world. With your investment, we can bolster a student experience that is shaped by personal service, outstanding amenities and life-changing relationships; a recognizable 21st Century Christian emphasis that is tightly woven into all parts of the Lipscomb experience; a Christian NCAA Division I athletic program that leads the nation; and a healthy pluralistic environment that equips the Lipscomb community to overcome difference to make a difference.

A Model for Sustained Success

When students have what they need to learn, their life’s work is our best outcome. You will make possible the betterment of Lipscomb’s faculty, the success of Lipscomb’s students, and the reach of Lipscomb’s programs. In so doing, you will elevate the Lipscomb experience for all students and bolster the value of a Lipscomb degree for students and alumni alike. You will ensure that the students you help send to Lipscomb not only find the resources they require but also achieve the outcomes they, and our world, need.
