For the second year in a row, Belmont University has been recognized as the most innovative in the Involved category of the Mayor’s Workplace Challenge. The aim of the mayor’s program is to recognize Nashville businesses and nonprofit organizations in the areas that most contribute to a high quality of life and healthy living including being green, involved in the community and being healthy.
Belmont took top honors in the Involved category for being a community champion for its leadership in actively promoting volunteer service inside and outside the workplace. Examples of those efforts include the University’s new leadership development certification called “African-American Women on Boards,” its many programs among churches in the Edgehill neighborhood and its continued partnership with Metro Parks to improve the athletic facilities at E.S. Rose Park.
The University also earned a platinum seal, the highest designation, in the Healthy category and received a gold seal in the Green category. Read more about the Nashville Mayor’s Workplace Challenge.
