School Description

Provided by Lee University

Lee University is a Christian institution which offers liberal arts and professional education on both the baccalaureate and master's levels. The foundational purpose of all educational programs is to develop within the students knowledge, appreciation, understanding, ability and skills which will prepare them for responsible Christian living in the modern world.

Lee University is a private, comprehensive university located in Cleveland, Tennessee, in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Lee is emerging as a leader in higher education in the southeastern region and was ranked in 2009 in the "Top Tier" in the South by U.S. News & World Report (Comprehensive Medium- Size Universities). Lee is also ranked by Princeton Review's "Best Colleges" and is now one of the 136 colleges named Best in the Southeast. The university's growing reputation as a quality institution can be seen in the high caliber of faculty, students, and friends who are drawn to the campus.

Lee's enrollment has more than tripled from 1,214 (Fall 1986) to 4,147 (Fall 2008) under the leadership of president Paul Conn. This makes Lee the 5th largest undergraduate enrollment among the 103 Christian colleges who are member institutions of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (www.cccu.org). During that same period, average ACT scores of entering freshmen have increased to 23, and faculty has grown and diversified in order to offer a rapidly expanding slate of academic programs. Since 1986, Lee has added twenty-one major buildings necessary to serve the students.

At Lee, there's always something to be involved in. No matter your interest, Lee University has a place for each student to invest their time. The Lee family of students, faculty and staff are all here, providing an atmosphere where each student can cultivate lasting friendships and grow to spiritual maturity.

Student-ran clubs and organizations, athletic events, concerts, plays and a whole host of other daily and weekly activities await each and every student at Lee University.

Lee's 120-acre campus is located in a residential neighborhood on the center of historic Ocoee street area near downtown Cleveland, only 30 minutes from the heart of Chattanooga, just 28 miles away; 124 miles from Atlanta; 172 miles from Birmingham; and 181 miles from Nashville.
