Belmont is one of the best Christian universities in America, according to a list by The Edvocate that ranked the University no. 12 on its recent list of 2020 Best Christian Colleges and Universities in America.

In addition to the overall list, Belmont tied for fourth place for outstanding undergraduate teaching. The site ranked Belmont no. 5 among regional universities in the South, highlighting the university’s offerings for veterans and degrees in music and music production.

Dr. Todd Lake, vice president for spiritual development, said, “Belmont is one of the fastest growing and most dynamic Christian universities in the country because we have both broadened and deepened how we live out the Christian faith.”

The University now has 20 student-led Christian faith development organizations, sends hundreds of students on mission trips each year, brings Chapel speakers to campus in every academic discipline, and directly serves Nashville residents who are homeless or in need of legal or healthcare services.
