Parents Circle



The purpose of the Bellarmine University Parents Circle is to create an engaging, informative and fun community for current and past parents. The Parents Circle is open to all current and past parents of Bellarmine students.

The Parents Circle allows Bellarmine parents to meet each other, develop friendships and get a “behind the scenes” experience of the university. The President of Bellarmine or University Administrators will be at most events to update parents on plans for the university, and get feedback from the parents on their student’s experience.

There is philanthropic element of the Parents Circle that is a gift of $2,000 for each fiscal year (June 1 – May 31).  If you wish to make a gift online, please click here.
