Faculty Fellowship

Recruitment for the 2021-2023 fellowship years begins in the Fall of 2020, with new fellows starting June 1, 2021

Belmont University’s vision statement is To be a leader among teaching universities, bringing together the best of liberal arts and professional education in a Christian community of learning and service”. This recognizes the centrality of teaching as part of a successful, 21st century, student-centered, academic institution.

The Belmont University Fellows Program provides a unique and valuable opportunity to increase diversity among future faculty. Fellows candidates will have received a terminal degree in their discipline and possess a desire to seek a position at a teaching-focused institution. To support this, Fellows will be recruited based on their academic and professional accomplishments but will be selected with a focus on under-represented groups in their discipline. This two-year program allows for the Belmont Fellow to be mentored by a Faculty Mentor at Belmont University in the development and delivery of rigorous courses while engaging in a research program involving Belmont University students. The intent is to help develop the pipeline for faculty to transition from graduate research at “R1” institutions into teaching-research positions at institutions like Belmont.

Our Mission: Belmont University is a student-centered Christian Community providing an academically challenging education that empowers men and women of diverse backgrounds to engage and transform the world with disciplined intelligence, compassion, courage and faith.

Our Vision: To be a leader among teaching universities, together the best of liberal arts and professional education in a Christian community of learning and service.

Our Values: Integrity. Inquiry. Collaboration. Service. Humility.
