From life’s beginning to its end, from the first cry to the last smile, social workers touch the world— and Christian social workers touch the world for God.
Our academically strong, culturally relevant programs prepare our students as competent, compassionate generalist social workers who exhibit Christ-likeness through interpersonal sensitivity, sacrificial service, academic excellence, professional passion and personal integrity. Plus, learning to practice social work within the context of our College of Liberal Arts & Sciences helps students think about individuals and society holistically.
The field of social work has core values of integrity, service, social justice, dignity and worth of persons, importance of human relationships, and competence. Our department is a natural extension of the mission of Lipscomb University to “integrate Christian faith with academic excellence.”
