Belmont Community for Diverse Faculty and Staff Members Present at ATE Conference

On July 31, Dr. Darcie Finch from Belmont’s College of Education, Dr. AdriAnne Sternberg from Belmont’s Division of Student Formation, and Dr. Anthony Blash from Belmont’s College of Pharmacy continued conversations around the impact of Belmont’s recently dedicated Freedom Plaza with members and guests of the Association of Teacher Educators (ATE).  

The ATE focuses on equity, leadership and advocacy for all teacher educators and learners. As participants in Belmont’s Community for Diverse Faculty and Staff (BCDFS), Finch, Sternberg and Blash engaged the larger community in discussions around inclusion, diversity and equity to emphasize Belmont’s strategic priority of helping reweave the social fabric.

With the ATE’s focus and Belmont’s commitment, the stage was set for rich opportunities for learning and reflection during the summer conference.

The BCDFS is an organization that was created in 2021 to serve Belmont’s diverse faculty and staff by providing a network of professionals that support each other through mentoring, research collaborations, teaching and social networking.
