Full-time staff and faculty receive an excellent benefit package. A few highlights:

Health care and retirement benefits

Belmont offers generous health, dental and vision insurance, as well as a 403b retirement plan with immediate matching of up to 5%.


Enjoy great facilities and entertainment

At Belmont, there is never a shortage of things to do.  You and your family can attend music, entertainment and athletic events at no or low cost.  Employees also receive discounts in the cafeteria and bookstore and other discounts in the community.

Free or reduced tuition for you and your family

We offer free or reduced tuition to yourself, spouse and children for classes taken at Belmont. Belmont is also a member of the Tuition Exchange program along with over 600+ institutions providing an average $32,000 annual scholarships for staff dependents.

Free Benefits for Commuters

Since 2005, Belmont has offered free transportation to and from campus thanks to a partnership with Nashville’s Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA).  This includes MTA buses, Relax & Ride commuter buses, and the Music City Star rail system. More information can be found on the information for commuters page.

Belmont encourages all employees to grow in their careers. Belmont offers a wide variety of professional development opportunities for staff and faculty employees and supervisors including online and classroom training, a sack lunch series and software training.

For faculty a strong emphasis on Teaching, Service, and Scholarship and intentional faculty development support is offered through our Teaching Center, support for off-campus services through offices of Service Learning and Community Outreach, and faculty scholarship based on the Boyer taxonomy of scholarship.
