Embodying faith in academics

When Klarissa Jackson met the group of Lipscomb students who worshipped in her local congregation, she was impressed by their character and demeanor.

Klarissa Jackson discusses Lipscomb Leads and the how giving opens opportunities for students and faculty.

Now as a current assistant professor of pharmaceutical sciences in the College of Pharmacy, she continues to be impressed by the integration of faith in a learning environment that promotes academic excellence. Lipscomb has given her the opportunity to integrate her three interests: faith, teaching, and research. Currently, Jackson teaches in the Doctor of Pharmacy program and works as a research scientist, bringing innovation to her industry while developing student researchers.

She believes Lipscomb Leads as a competitive research university, especially in the pharmaceutical sciences. Opportunities like summer research programs and a legacy of prestigious pharmacy fellowships are a testament to Lipscomb’s investment in cultivating curious, committed students. Our dedicated faculty and state-of-the-art facilities, such as the Pharmaceutical Sciences Research Center, help to position our students for success.
