A place for justice.

Scarritt Bennett Center is a nonprofit conference, retreat, and education center in Nashville, TN. Owned by United Methodist Women, our campus is formerly home to United Methodist-related Scarritt College for Christian Workers (1924-1980) and Scarritt Graduate School (1981-1988). Today, Scarritt Bennett Center works to continue on the powerful legacy of Scarritt students, faculty, and staff in the fight for women’s rights, racial justice, and dignity for all.
