Upcoming Lectures & Public Programs
In 2008, Bellarmine University launched a five-year Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), Liberal Education in an International Context: Preparing Students for a Globally Competitive World, to internationalize the Bellarmine campus and curriculum. An important part of this initiative is bringing more international speakers and educational programs to campus. These timely and compelling offerings give members of the Bellarmine community a window to the world, thereby helping students apply a global perspective to all aspects of their learning experience. QEP-sponsored lectures are designated in the descriptions below.
All events are free unless noted below.
