Belmont University | Belief in Something Greater

Mary Goodloe, Ph.D.


I joined the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Belmont University in 2001.  I earned both an M.A. and a Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Kentucky; my research was in the field of Complex Analysis. I also have an M.B.A. from the University of Memphis and a B.A. from Rhodes College.

I began my professional career at Buckman Laboratories International where I became a Vice President and the manager of the Human Resources, Strategic Planning, and Legal departments. However, I never forgot my dream of becoming a college professor, and I returned to school in my thirties to pursue that goal. Teaching at Belmont University was my first full-time academic position. 

With my background in Analysis, I particularly enjoy teaching calculus and analysis. I frequently teach Discrete Mathematics and Mathematical Inquiry and I relish the opportunity these courses give me to broaden as well as deepen students’ mathematical knowledge. In the past few years I have had the pleasure of studying Graph Theory and Network Science.

Away from Belmont I am very active at Donelson Presbyterian Church. I also love nature and spend a week in a different national park each summer. At home I enjoy reading, gardening, and playing with my two cats.

I would like to contact Dr. Goodloe.
