Working together to create a more just world.
For more than a century, our campus has been equipping good people to do good work all around the world.
Located on 10 peaceful acres in the heart of Nashville’s historic Music Row, Scarritt Bennett Center’s campus has been a place for justice and transformative education for more than a century. What began as a school for women missionaries in 1892 in Kansas City, MO, Scarritt Bennett Center resides on the campus of what eventually became Scarritt College for Christian Workers.
The legacy of Scarritt students, faculty, and staff in movements for justice such as women’s rights, desegregation, civil rights, international relations, and interfaith dialogue runs wide and deep. When the College closed in 1988, the campus became home to Scarritt Bennett Center, a place of hospitality, education about justice and equality, reconciliation and renewal, and cooperation and interaction within the ecumenical and global context. Rooted in mission, the Center is committed to the eradication of racism, empowerment of women, and spiritual formation. The campus is owned by United Methodist Women.
The Center’s breathtaking historic architecture, robust campus gardens, and convenient location in the heart of Nashville, combined with our commitment to justice and passion for creating a more just world, make Scarritt Bennett Center an exciting professional and personal choice.
