The Office of Multicultural Affairs

The Office of Multicultural Affairs has been quite busy this year!

Our office goals are create educational opportunities for members of the Bellarmine community to critically examine their beliefs, values and assumptions as it relates to multiculturalism. To ensure we fulfill our mission we are committed to offering co-curricular programs that acknowledge and reflect the experiences of underrepresented populations, while also providing educational opportunities for all members of the campus community.
