Brave BU Icon

BraveBU is a group of students committed to fostering a culture on campus that empowers faculty, staff, and students to create a safer and healthier campus community and to support members of our campus community through community partnerships, education, and awareness focusing on gender-based violence. Just as Knights are courageous, strong, and loyal, Bellarmine community members have a rich tradition of loyalty and commitment to each other. BraveBU seeks to encourage all Bellarmine students, faculty, and staff to take steps to prevent harm to fellow community members. BraveBU programs will raise awareness and encourage each Bellarmine Knight to support a "community of care" for their peers. Please join the movement in order to demonstrate that we are BraveBU.

BraveBU seeks to encourage all Bellarmine students, faculty, and staff to take steps to prevent harm to fellow community members. We all have a shared responsibility to keep our community safe.
