“Lipscomb University continues to experience an enrollment and building boom, and a new $8.5-million nursing building is another building project intended to spur growth on the bustling Green Hills campus.”

Since 2007, the university has seen record enrollment each fall and a 46 percent increase in its student body. This fall, 4,018 students enrolled.

Investing in the facilities coincides with the growth in the academic programs, said Danny Taylor, Lipscomb chief financial officer. Along with the nursing building, which will open in July, Lipscomb also will add a $6-million pharmacy research wing to the new facility by 2013.

Those projects, along with the recently completed Nelson and Sue Andrews Institute for Civic Leadership, doubling the size of the student activities center and current interior construction on the Ezell Center, are a part of a $125 million master plan that will span the next five years.

“Lipscomb has been a great secret in the marketplace, because, despite the recession, we’ve added staff positions, enhanced our facilities and we’ve been able to show that we have students that leave and find jobs,” Taylor said.

The 24,000-square-foot, three-story nursing building, which will be at the corner of Belmont Boulevard and Glen Echo Road, will house classrooms, faculty offices, study space and clinical labs for nursing and pharmacy students, said Roger Davis, dean of Lipscomb’s College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences.”
