A Safe, Caring Campus

Though there may be a number of uncertainties students may be feeling as they think about college this fall one fact is certain — we are committed to the safety and wellbeing of our community. One of our top priorities is always the safety and security of our students. At Lipscomb we are transforming many of our spaces on campus, our practices and our procedures to make them as healthy as possible for everyone in our community when we are all together again this fall. This ongoing priority is led by Dr. Kevin Eidson, director of health and wellness, to ensure our community is planning for and operating in the safest way possible so that we can all enjoy being a part of a healthy campus now and in the future. We have recently expanded our resources in this important area to ensure the best and most healthy environment as we return to on campus classes in the fall.

Advisor talking to student

Personalized Advising

The purpose of academic advising is to assist students in making progress toward achieving their educational, career, and personal goals. Utilizing faculty and selected staff as academic advisors, the university seeks to support and promote intellectual growth and academic success for students through effective academic advising.

Academic advising has transitioned to a virtual setting with faculty using scheduling platforms such as Calendly to schedule advising appointments with students. The advising sessions are accomplished via Zoom and other conferencing technology.
