Lincoln Memorial University provides a dynamic living-learning experience that impacts students’ lives whether they are in the classroom, the dorms, on the athletic fields, engaged in the community and regional service opportunities, or taking advantage of the wide variety of student-focused services or activities offered. Our campus 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.
