Belmont chief details plans for growth

From the Nashville Business Journal: Belmont University no longer is a sleepy little Baptist college. Since 1999, when Bob Fisher became president, school enrollment has more than doubled, passing the 4,000 mark this fall. … And academics have gotten a big boost, particularly in the colleges of business – undergraduate and graduate programs – and health sciences, through the addition of programs and the recruitment of top-level faculty and staff. … Fisher says high-profile faculty and staff hires are part of a larger strategy to catapult Belmont into national prominence. – Read the story on page 3 of the Oct. 7, 2005, edition of the Nashville Business Journal, or online here.
