Belmont is a private Christian university, so applicants do need to profess a Christian faith and respond to the university’s mission, vision, and values. But from my own experience and observation, the religious ‘atmosphere’ at the institution, and more so in the College of Music and Performing Arts, is not conservative. One thing that I appreciate is that the university and CMPA has been working intentionally, more so as national discourse has become more polarized, to foster greater inclusivity and diversity across multiple professional and pedagogical aspects.
