Lipscomb University Austin Center, formerly known as the Austin Graduate School of Theology, and the Institute for Christian Studies, is a private Christian seminary associated with the Churches of Christ and located in Austin, Texas. It is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award bachelor's and master's degrees.
On January 1, 2021, the merger with Lipscomb University was completed and Austin Graduate School of Theology is now known as Lipscomb University Austin Center (LUAC). LUAC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lipscomb. It was announced that under the merger the graduate programs would be expanded to include Master of Divinity and Doctorate of Ministry programs.
On November 9, 2022, the office of the president of Lipscomb University would be closing the Austin center at the close of the Spring 2023 semester, citing a "number of challenges to successfully reviving the school" including the fallout of the COVID19 pandemic and the economic environment.
