Rick Holaway

Vice President of Enrollment Management
Adjunct Faculty

First impressions are important in any business, and that is no exception at Lipscomb. And the start to any undergraduate’s experience begins long before they step on campus for the first day of classes. Rick Holaway oversees the new student enrollment for undergraduates. He is passionate about working with students and their families as students make one of their first “big choices” in life—where to go to college. But it doesn’t end there. His passion for following student’s lives as they grow, mature and one-day graduate is—in the end—what his team is all about.

Holaway, a graduate of Lipscomb University, has increased undergraduate enrollment for the university by 25 percent since he took the helm in 2004. In the same time period, he increased first-time freshman enrollment by 39 percent—this during a time of economic downturn and increased unrest in higher education. Holaway received his B.S. and MBA from Lipscomb University and his Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) from George Fox University. He also is an adjunct faculty member in the College of Business.
