ratio, accessible student services, and programming tailored for you.

"Joining the Army was the best decision of my life,” Welch said. “The second-best was coming to Bellarmine. Never as a veteran have I felt more welcomed, supported and at home than I have at Bellarmine.”
The mission of the Bellarmine University Office of Military & Veteran Services is to support all military-affiliated students, alumni, faculty, and staff on Bellarmine's Campus. We bring visibility and solutions to the unique needs of military-affiliated individuals on campus through advising, programming, policy development, advocacy, and specialized services.
The Valor Learning Community (VLC) is for first-year and transfer Active Duty, National Guard, Select Reserves, and veteran students. To meet the needs of our military-affiliated students, we have created unique courses and programs designed to encourage
overall academic success and camaraderie building. The VLC will enhance the academic careers of our military-affiliated students by exemplifying the strengths they bring to our campus. Contact Lindsay Gargotto at
email@example.com or 502.272.8547 to learn more.
The OMVS would like to recognize this may be a difficult time for veterans on our campus and in our community who experienced deployments to Afghanistan, many of us of multiple times. It is important to us that each of you know that you are not alone.
We each carry our own story, and we are all connected by one profound understanding: sacrifice.
