Why is this the site of the Presidential debate?

This is from the website of the university at which tonight's debate is being held.

Belmont Mission Statement

Mission Statement
Belmont University is a student-centered Christian community providing an academically challenging education that empowers men and women of diverse backgrounds to engage and transform the world with disciplined intelligence, compassion, courage and faith.

Belmont's faculty, administration, and staff uphold Jesus as the Christ and as the measure for all things.

Belmont University’s Board of Trustees is unanimously committed to broadening and deepening the Christian mission of the university. The Christian character of the university will be increasingly evident in all that we do as our actions speak of our love for God. We will, in continuous thanksgiving, point to our God as the source of all that is good. Our hope is that every student will see and believe that the love of Jesus Christ compels us to lead lives of disciplined intelligence, compassion, courage, and faith.

Diverse doesn't seem to stand for diversity in religion.
Every color christian seems to be the order of the day.
Even thought i doubt that too, considering the constant fights between the different strands of christianity.
Certainly not a diverse ground for a town meeting.
Is this a fight for the Christian vote, more than a vote for a diverse, dynamic America? Then help me God.
