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 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.
