About the 2021 Conference Site

Lipscomb University ( is pleased to host the 32st annual CSKLS Conference June 14-17, 2021. Since 2021 marks the first “regular” CSKLS Annual Conference since Judson University in 2018, we’ve added one additional day to the conference calendar! This addition will allow us to offer even more of what makes CSKLS great. In addition to more peer-reviewed presentations and enhanced opportunities for fellowship and community, we are planning 1) several outstanding keynote sessions highlighting topics that are of special interest to all conferees, 2) professional development and mentorship opportunities, and 3) time in one of America’s premier cities for entertainment, food, music, and art – Nashville, Tennessee. Presentations and topics will be announced as the final program takes shape in late March of 2021.

Lipscomb was founded in Nashville in 1891 by David Lipscomb and James A. Harding who believed that a truly educated individual of their time could not be so without attention given to spiritual growth as well as academics. The university is still a place of academic rigor and spiritual growth with more than 4,600 students enrolled at the university and another 1200 at the K-12 Academy. Students choose from eight bachelor’s degrees in 78 majors or 145 areas of undergraduate study, several pre-professional programs, and an accelerated evening and online adult degree program for those who wish to complete their undergraduate degrees. Lipscomb also offers master’s degrees, education specialist degrees, and doctorate degrees in 58 fields of study.

Situated just south of downtown Nashville in a wooded suburb with easy access to interstates, shopping, food, and, of course, music, Lipscomb offers an idyllic location for the 2021 conference. Music City, USA awaits! Plan on bringing your family to enjoy this Southern destination. Travelers to the area can easily fly into Nashville International Airport (BNA).
