In commemoration of Lincoln's birthday, the institution was chartered by the State of Tennessee on February 12, 1897, as Lincoln Memorial University.

Since that time, Lincoln Memorial University has sought to provide educational opportunities, development of community leadership, and the expansion of economic and social forces within its region. 


Lincoln Memorial University is a comprehensive values-based learning community dedicated to providing quality educational experiences at the undergraduate, graduate, and professional levels. 

The University believes that one of the major cornerstones of meaningful existence is service to humanity. By making educational, service, and research opportunities available to students, Lincoln Memorial University seeks to improve life for the students it serves. 


While primarily committed to teaching, the University supports research and service. The University's curriculum and commitment to quality instruction at every level are based on the beliefs that graduates must be able to communicate clearly and effectively in an era of rapidly and continuously expanding communication technology, must have an appreciable depth of learning in a field of knowledge, must appreciate and understand the various ways by which we come to know ourselves and the world around us, and must be able to exercise informed judgments.

Student services

The Vice President for Academic and Student Services brings together, under one office, three core functions of Lincoln Memorial University (LMU), Academic Support, Student Support, and Institutional Effectiveness and Accreditation.

Housing services

Residence Life on a university campus can be one of the most meaningful ingredients in a college experience. One significant part of a University education is the learning that comes from living with others. A good deal of adjustment occurs in the transition from high school to University and from home life to residence hall life, and sometimes even from freshman to sophomore year. LMU's Residence Life Program is designed to help you make personal, social and academic adjustments in as healthy a way as possible, and to make your living experience both educational and enjoyable. 

Library services

Carnegie-Vincent Library is the main outlet of the kind at the Lincoln Memorial University.

Medical services

LMU-DCOM students have access to diagnostic, preventive and therapeutic health services, accessible in all locations where students receive education from LMU-DCOM.
