Additional Comments & Information
About Lipscomb University and Lipscomb Academy
Lipscomb University is a Christian institution committed to creating students
whose academic excellence, faith and practice, and community service reflect
our ideals of global citizenship. Our mission is to integrate Christian faith
and practice with academic excellence, not only in the classroom but also by
involvement in numerous services to the church and the larger community. It is
a place that sees the city as our campus and the world as our classroom. This
is what grounds us, and it is also what has grown us.
The institution includes both Lipscomb University and Lipscomb Academy. The
University enrolls more than 4,600 students, has a 10-year growth rate from
2007-2017 of almost 70 percent and offers students an intellectually
challenging academic program of study that includes eight bachelor's degrees
with over 100 majors spanning the liberal arts to programs of study in pre-
professional and professional disciplines, 24 master's degrees in 70 fields of
study, four education specialist degrees and three doctoral degrees. Each
year, Lipscomb students contribute an average of 60,000 hours of service to
nonprofits and organizations. Classified as a national university by U.S. News
& World Report, Lipscomb University is classified as a doctoral university by
the Carnegie Foundation, placing it among 7 percent of schools nationwide.
Lipscomb Academy is a leader in PreK-12th schools in the Nashville area and
enrolls over 1,200 students in academic programs from 2-year-olds to 12th
grade where students are equipped to love to learn, learn to love, and live to
serve. Lipscomb Academy's mission as a Christ-centered PreK-12th grade
institution has been greater than shaping the minds of children; we guide
children to discover their God-given gifts and passions, to develop as a whole
person and to become a positive influence in their local and the greater
global community. Throughout its existence, the Academy has benefitted from
its unique association with Lipscomb University through access to its college-
level professors, equipment and resources while delivering rigorous academic
opportunities and offering compelling and competitive athletic programs all
wrapped in an environment grounded in spiritual formation.

Nashville, Tennessee, there are two satellite locations and numerous online
programs. At the heart of Lipscomb University are more than 860 full-time
faculty and staff at the University and 160 full-time faculty and staff at the
Academy who are committed to creating a lasting impact beyond the campus,
serving the good of humanity to the glory of God. As you learn more about
Lipscomb, we hope you find it to be a place that is joyfully and energetically
committed to God and a place where you truly want to share and invest your
talents and skills.
