To provide quality educational experiences which stimulate students to join faculty in continuing exploration and critical study of scientific and mathematical ideas.
The School of Sciences challenges students to see knowledge as dynamic, while promoting scientific and mathematical principles as ways of knowing the world. Both students and faculty engage in scientific and mathematical practices that explore intellectual boundaries based on an established understanding of the world. Faculty employ innovative pedagogies, technology, research, and scholarship to encourage reflection on, and an understanding of, a scientific way of knowing.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded Belmont University a $575,000 grant in support of scholarships for students in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) with the intention of attracting women, minorities, first-generation college students and economically disadvantaged students to these disciplines. The NSF sees investment in STEM education as crucial if the U.S. is to hold its place as a world leader in science and technology. This project, titled "Pathways to Science, Technology and Mathematics," will involve Belmont faculty working with high schools and industries across Middle Tennessee and is an important piece of a renewed vision of the sciences at Belmont.
