In 1891, David Lipscomb, along with James A. Harding, founded this school as a place where faith and learning go hand in hand. More than a century later, that’s still true for the more than 4,500 undergraduate and graduate students who attend. Spiritual formation, academic rigor and professional development—delivered in an environment that cherishes each individual—that’s what Lipscomb University is now and has always been about. And by the way, just a few years after its founding, Lipscomb donated his Nashville farm to the school, the same land where the university grows today. Chances are, he never visualized how those “seeds” would take root!
If your student is a Bison or about to become one, that means you’re a Bison, too. We’re here to answer any questions, keep you up to date on the latest campus happenings, and make sure you feel as secure and confident as can be about your student's education at Lipscomb—and maybe let you in on a few things your student simply forgot to tell you!
