A Top-Tier, Christ-Centered Experience

Welcome to Lee University, in scenic southeast Tennessee, where the Tennessee River carves through the Appalachian foothills. We offer well over 150 programs of study from associates to doctoral degrees, but our original focus – and still our mission more than a century later – is to create a safe but challenging environment in which our students can develop and prepare for a complex and demanding world.


We have a phrase around Lee, Expect Something Great. We think the college experience should be much more than just academic excellence. At Lee, we expect our students to experience transformational relationships with faculty, with other students, in campus life, and as they move into their calling.

Madison Cutshall

Madison Cutshall, a theatre major from Clyde, Ohio, says her favorite moment at Lee has been getting to watch actors perform a scene written by her for her playwrighting class. In addition to being involved in the theatre program, Madison has been able to act on stage and in film, as well as direct her own shows and write her own plays. “The highlight of my college career has been finding my family in Lee Theatre. I have truly made my best friends while at Lee, and it’s so easy to be loved and accepted here.” Madison hopes to continue performing after graduation, as well as write her own plays and screenplays.
