Parents and Families

Connecting you to the Bellarmine Community


The Office of Family Programs seeks to provide resources, information, and opportunities for parents and families to become partners with the university in the educational experiences of their students.

We provide information about activities and services for parents and families as well as opportunities  to network and socialize with one another. We also assist parents and their students in solving problems that may arise and promote parent and family participation in campus activities.

As important members of the Bellarmine community, we wish to be available to you and help you feel confident about your students’ experience. The welcome mat is always out for our parents and families to be a part of the activities and spirit found at this special place we call home, the Bellarmine Community.
