Through the division of Academic and Student Services, Lincoln Memorial University will provide a dynamic living-learning experience that impacts students’ lives whether they are in the classroom, the dorms, on the athletic fields, engaged in community and regional service opportunities, or taking advantage of the wide variety or student-focused services and activities offered. Our division believes that the best way to do this is to provide exceptional services in an environment where both academic and student services dovetail to positively impact student success.

The Office of the Vice President is located in the historic Grant-Lee hall on the main campus of Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, TN.
