Mission Statement

Lipscomb University is a private coeducational institution whose principal focus is an undergraduate education in the liberal arts and sciences, combined with a number of undergraduate professional and pre-professional fields, and master's and doctoral degree programs. Its primary mission is to integrate Christian faith and practice with academic excellence. This mission is carried out not only in the classroom but also by involvement in numerous services to the church and the larger community.

Lipscomb University is committed to providing an intentionally Christian education centered around five missional pillars: faith; community; knowledge; innovation; service. Lipscomb believes that as knowledge grows in use, it also grows in value; with the lessons of our classrooms, we work in the world; with the certainty of our faith, we serve the good of all; and with the experiences of our past, we plan for the future.
