Lipscomb recognizes the investment that you have in the success of your student and the important role that families play at the University. As a member of the Lipscomb community, parents are an important partner in supporting student development, academic achievement and spiritual growth.

We're here to help them get the most out of their experience at Lipscomb—academically, socially and spiritually, while making sure you feel confident that they will always receive the support and guidance needed while away from home.
