Educating talented diverse students of many faiths, ages, nations and cultures is a core principle of Bellarmine’s mission, and it also serves as the foundational objective of the programs and services provided by the Office of Identity and Inclusion (OII). More specifically, OII creates educational opportunities for members of the Bellarmine community to critically examine their beliefs, values and assumptions as it relates to multiculturalism. To ensure we fulfill our mission we are committed to offering co-curricular programs that acknowledge and reflect the experiences of underrepresented populations, while also providing educational opportunities for all members of the campus community to examine their individual and group experiences within a culturally diverse society. The underlying goal of these two endeavors is to construct a community that acknowledges the multiple perspectives and backgrounds that are present on campus, thereby creating an inclusive and celebratory campus environment where all students, staff and faculty are valued and affirmed.
