About Bellarmine University:

Bellarmine University is an independent liberal arts university founded in 1950 by the Archdiocese of Louisville. Finding inspiration in the life of the internationally renowned monk Thomas Merton, the campus community embraces the care and dignity of each individual and the quest for holiness/wholeness.

In this spirit we strive for international unity and diversity, hospitality, social justice and global sustainability. In constant searching, seek to honor Bellarmine’s founding motto: In Veritatis Amore – in the love of truth.
