Parents

You've prepared for this moment. So have we.

You want your student to choose an institution where they will thrive academically and be prepared for future success. But you aren't simply helping them pick which institution will be listed on their diploma—you’re deciding which campus culture will shape who they become.

That's where we come in. Lipscomb University is a premier, private, Christian university located in Nashville, Tennessee. Year after year, we earn top rankings for our diverse academic offerings, which encompass more than 145 areas of study in nearly 80 majors. Through challenging curriculum, service learning initiatives and global learning programs, we equip students to become leaders—not only in their professions but in an ever-changing society.

You want to know that you're sending your child to an environment that is supportive and nurturing. This is why I'm at a place like Lipscomb. — Alan Bradshaw, Physics Department Chair and Parent of Current Lipscomb Student

Supporting futures.

We are committed to providing a quality education from a faith-based, service-focused approach. Our faculty devotes substantial time and energy to shepherding students both in and out of the classroom—from advising appointments to afternoon coffee. On top of that, our small class sizes maintain a close-knit academic community.

Our students are compassionate leaders and driven professionals. Lipscomb leverages expansive organizational relationships to connect students to viable internships and competitive employment opportunities. Graduates have a long history of achieving their professional goals as part of communities in Nashville and around the world: our alumni have gone on to work for thousands of companies, from Warner Music to SpaceX.

Students work together in the Academic Success Center.

Academic Success

We see your student’s potential to transform communities around the world with their knowledge, skills and faith. That’s why we invest in them through interdisciplinary tutoring resources, academic advising, career development services and much more. Whether they’re attempting to pass a math exam or discern a vocational calling, they’ll have a support network.

Vocational Discovery

Vocational Discovery

Through the Center for Vocational Discovery, students will embark on a four-year journey that begins as a freshman and continues until graduation. Each year will have a specific focus and will be integrated into a student’s experience in a variety of ways connecting Bible, academics and student life to engage students in finding their God-given purpose as they explore their career aspirations and calling.
