Tara Lentz  Tara Lentz

Adjunct Professor, Learning, Diversity, and Urban Studies Internship

Lentz manages the Social Integration programs for Conexión Américas, programs that create alliances and friendships, answer important questions for immigrants in a new land, and deepen the roots of Latino families in Middle Tennessee. She also coordinates volunteers and tracks program performance and data for the organization. In 2011, Tara received a Master of Divinity from Vanderbilt University. That means she preaches regularly, and in both English and Spanish.  Lentz coordinates and supervises the yearlong LDUS internship experience and helps connect students to her many colleagues across Nashville.
