New Faculty

mike_pinterThe Teaching Center is excited to be a part of your experience as a new faculty member at Belmont. After more than 20 years at Belmont, I still feel uniquely connected to the group of faculty who came to Belmont the same year as I did. I knew then and still believe now that we attract to Belmont faculty members who are excited about and dedicated to quality teaching that maximizes student learning. Our work as a group, in the August New Faculty Orientation and throughout the upcoming year, is designed to build a strong sense of community with each other as we explore many aspects of teaching and learning. I look forward to our time together.  Mike Pinter, Teaching Center Director
