What is now Scarritt Bennett Center began in 1892 in Kansas City, MO, as Scarritt College for Christian Workers. A school established to train young women missionaries, Scarritt College trained women for global leadership in the church during a time when women were prohibited from other forms of leadership across most denominations.
Scarritt Bennett Center is located in the historic midtown area, right off Music Row and next to Vanderbilt University. The campus, which is listed on the National Historic Registry, is within walking distance to dozens of restaurants, music venues, and famous Nashville attractions. Campus is also a 5-minute walk to a bus stop, easily accessible via a cab/Lyft/Uber, a 5-minute drive from downtown Nashville, and a 15-minute drive from the Nashville International Airport.
