Chris Kircher

Assistant Dean of Admission


Phone: 502-272-8127

Get to know me: I graduated from Bellarmine University in 2007 with a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies and will be completing my Masters in Communications in May of 2018. I was born and raised in Louisville, KY and went to Trinity High School. I reside in the Highlands and stay busy outside of work spending time with my wife and two little girls!

Favorite Spot on Campus: The Library! There are so many beautiful and relaxing places on campus but the library is by far my favorite. I was always able to accomplish a lot in the Library. The library was the one place where I could do homework, write a paper or hang out with friends. Overall, it was a very peaceful and quiet place for me to gather my thoughts.

Hello, it’s nice to meet you! A little bit about me, I was born and raised in Owensboro, KY but consider Louisville my home. My dearest family and friends live here now too, and I can understand why. There’s so much to do!! I received my undergraduate degree in Business Management and Marketing. My passion is helping others and I love serving as a resource to students.

Favorite spot on campus: My favorite spot on campus would have to be the courtyard located in the middle of our Siena residence halls. The flowing waterfall, array of green life, and crackling firepit all come together to make this space a relaxing oasis. We want our students to feel completely at home on our campus, and the courtyard is the perfect shared space for our residential and commuter students to come together for nightly fireside chats, special concert series events, and more!

Get to know me: Get to know me: I am a recent alumni of Bellarmine, graduating with a Bachelors of Art in Communication and Psychology in 2019. I grew up in Lexington, Ky, attended Lexington Catholic High School, and then moved to Louisville for college. I love the city of Louisville because there are so many things to do on the weekends with your friends and the restaurants here are top-notch. Watch out for the freshmen 15, though!

Favorite Spot on campus: My favorite spot on Bellarmine’s campus is the Student Activities Center! Throughout the day, you will see a diverse group of students hanging out, eating lunch, or conducting important meetings for Student Government or Bellarmine Activities Council and other RSOs. It is a great place to meet new friends and get connected with other leaders on campus, including the staff. Plus, it is right below Café WOW which has the BEST ranch.

Admission Counselor


Phone: 502-272-8274

Get to know me: My name’s Malcolm Jones and I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Liberal Arts with a Minor in Gender Diversity. I grew up right down the street in Middletown, KY and attended Eastern High School. I love Louisville, KY and consider it my home whenever I am away. One thing to know about me is that I love the food and the bakeries here. They truly are the best of the best and I encourage you to explore the city and all it has to offer!

Favorite Spot on campus: My favorite spot on campus is probably the University Dining Hall. It’s a great place to hang with friends, family and coworkers and just eat and talk. The view from the hill is gorgeous and you’re able to take in the sights and sounds while enjoying the best food on campus.


Haley Kirchner

Admission Counselor


Phone: 502-272-8266

Get to know me: I am a Bellarmine ’16 alumni with a Bachelor of Arts in Education. I grew up in a rural section of Northern Kentucky and attended Walton-Verona High School. After graduating from Bellarmine, I decided to stay in Louisville because it’s so awesome! I also taught for two years before deciding to work at Bellarmine. I love all things food, cute animals, and Packers football!

Favorite spot on campus: While all of campus is great, I think my favorite spot has to be Palio. I’m always down for a late night snack and Palio makes the BEST buffalo chicken wraps. It’s also a cool spot to just hang out and snack with friends, especially in the winter when you don’t feel like walking from your dorm to UDH in the cold!

I plan on starting my Master’s in Business Administration in the next couple of years.

Favorite spot on campus: My favorite spot on campus is the SuRF. The SuRF is the place where I met many of my new friends for the first time. This was also a place I enjoyed as a student because there was plenty to do. Some of my favorite things to do at the SuRF included playing pick-up basketball, playing ping pong, and watching sporting events on the TV in the lobby.


Frequently Asked Questions

How will the courses be taught?

In-Person, Face-to-Face (F2F)

The defining characteristic of face-to-face courses is that they will meet during regular class schedules and the instructor and all enrolled students will be present in the classroom together for all meetings using the latest physical distancing guidelines.


Online courses are conducted 100 percent virtually throughout the entire semester.

  • Most online courses will be synchronous (required specified virtual meeting times) or have synchronous components such as scheduled discussion groups. Synchronous course times and days are reflected on the class schedule so that students know when to virtually attend. 
  • A small number of online courses will be asynchronous (specific meeting times are not required) in which case there are no times and days listed on the class schedule. Students in asynchronous courses will follow instructional expectations outlined by the instructor.
