    About Bellarmine University

    Founded in 1950, Bellarmine is the premier independent Catholic university in the South and the leading private university in Kentucky. With an undergraduate and graduate enrollment of nearly 4,000 students, Bellarmine is ranked among the nation’s best colleges by the Princeton Review and consistently ranks as one of the top universities in the South by US News & World Report.

    Bellarmine strives to imbue students with the knowledge and skills to develop solutions and opportunities—creative, substantial, and enduring—for a globally sustainable future. A Bellarmine education has three components: a foundational emphasis on the liberal arts; high-impact learning opportunities for global engagement, including study abroad (Bellarmine's offerings in international study are among the most extensive and numerous among colleges and universities); and practical preparation for lives of personal and professional fulfillment.  

    Grounded in the liberal arts and sciences, Bellarmine provides its students a lifelong education, worthy of the university's namesake, Saint Robert Bellarmine, and of his invitation to learn and live in veritatis amore – in the love of all that is beautiful, true and good in life. Bellarmine offers more than 50 undergraduate majors across its seven colleges and schools, as well as a wide array of certificate, masters degree, and doctorate degree programs, including three online masters degrees. Since 2005 Bellarmine has launched 23 new degree and certificate programs, including five new doctoral degrees. The institution's academic offerings have grown over the last fifteen years in both undergraduate and graduate programs, with the result that students have an astonishingly rich array of choices. 

    Bellarmine offers over 20 graduate and second degree programs with both local and national reach.  Students can choose between both full and part-time programs delivered either in the classroom or online.  

    Undergraduate students at Bellarmine study a broad range of disciplines, regardless of their major(s), which sees them well equipped to embrace our complex world with confidence on a broad range of career paths.  The undergraduate student makeup is as follows:  65% female, 35% male, 18% under-represented minorities and 70% from Kentucky with, 20% from the region that includes Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, Tennessee and Missouri, 8% other states and international with an average G.P.A of 3.56 and an average ACT 25.11.

    Students look to Bellarmine for a sense of community and an excellent and value-laden education. Over one-third of the undergraduate body is first-generation; a similar proportion is Pell-eligible. Of the undergraduates, 95 percent receive some form of financial aid. A Bellarmine education can be transformative; among Kentucky public and private non-profit colleges, Bellarmine's students claim the highest median salary ten years after graduating.

    Students beginning the 2018-19 academic year were welcomed by 181 full-time faculty members (82 tenured or tenure track), 81 percent of which hold terminal degrees in their fields. The ranks of tenured and tenure-track faculty are supplemented by 249 part-time contract faculty who are outstanding practitioners in their fields, and whose expertise enhance the University's programs.   

    Along with the faculty, the work of Bellarmine is enabled by 319 full-time and 56 part-time staff who are energetic, committed to excellence in their work, and devoted to the University. Forty full-time staff and 10-part-time staff work within the schools supporting the academic mission. Many are long-standing employees and have been instrumental to the University's growth. 

    Bellarmine's 2018-19 operating budget is approximately $69 million. As of May 2018, the endowment was $65 million, nearly double its size since 2006; net assets in fiscal year 2018 totaled $132 million.

    One of Dr. Donovan's first major actions as President was to launch an institution-wide strategic planning process that officially began in early 2018. To ensure transparency and inclusion, Dr. Donovan invited all University members—faculty, staff, students, trustees, and the alumni community—to participate in numerous town halls and working groups. Six themes were presented and approved by the Board of Trustees in December of 2018 and the final strategic plan will be written and presented to the public in May of 2019. 

    Dr. Donovan reports to the Board of Trustees, a 36-member governing body. The University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). The last accreditation visit was completed in the 2017-18 academic year; visitors gave high praise to the University.

    “Everything we do at Beloit College begins with students. Our mission statement, in this way, sets the tone. Everyone from our coaches to our faculty members, from the Board of Trustees to our admissions staff, is focused on supporting and enriching the student experience at Beloit College.

    “This singular focus, however, doesn’t translate to a cushy environment. That’s not Beloit. Ours is a community where challenges are confronted and risk taking rewarded; where close observation trumps 30,000-foot speculation. Where hands get dirty and boots too. Where information is passed along and processed, sifted and tested—and then, always, applied.

    “This is more unique than you might think.” 

    --Scott Bierman, President of Beloit College, in a recent letter for the Beloit College Magazine

     

    Beloit College invites nominations and applications for the position of Vice President for Enrollment. Reporting to, and partnering with, President Scott Bierman, the Vice President for Enrollment will be an active member of the college’s leadership team, a team that describes itself collectively as collaborative and inextricably linked, with “enormously high expectations” of themselves and for the college.  The Vice President works closely with colleagues in communications and marketing, finance and planning, development and alumni, academic affairs, athletics and student life, and will engage the trust and camaraderie of the community in moving Beloit College forward.  The college is poised for further success and seeks an outstanding and effective vice president to lead the charge in admissions and in the strategic oversight of financial aid strategy surrounding prospective and continuing students.

    Academics

    Today, Beloit’s commitment to experiential, interdisciplinary and international learning is evidenced in the college’s “Liberal Arts in Practice” focus.

Beloit offers more than 50 majors, 30 minors, and a number of dual-degree and pre-professional programs. The average class size at Beloit is 15 and the student-to-faculty ratio is 11:1.

    Beloit students are distinguished by a commitment to independent thought, a concern for the common good, and a passionate, critical engagement with the world.  Eighty-four percent of the 1,200 students are from out-of-state representing nearly every state, the District of Columbia, and 40 countries. Twenty-six percent of the students are domestic minorities and seventeen percent come from countries other than the United States.

    Beloit College offers students an exceptional array of opportunities to study off-campus in countries across the world as well as domestically. Beloit students regularly conduct advanced research, run service projects, start businesses and organizations, take internships and field terms, do community outreach, produce plays and exhibits and events—on campus and around the world. These experiences, combined with academic rigor, provide a platform for meaningful jobs, graduate and professional studies, and rewarding lives.

    Saint Michael’s College

    The only Edmundite College in the world, Saint Michael’s was founded in 1904 by the Society of Saint Edmund, an order of priests that came to Vermont from France.  With a tradition of taking on the most challenging tasks, the core tenets of the Edmundites are social justice, education, hospitality, spiritual renewal and pastoral ministry.  Although the Edmundites have transitioned the College’s administrative responsibilities to lay personnel over the last 25 years, their presence on campus has an important, spiritual and lasting impact on the life of the entire College community.  It is no surprise that Saint Michael’s offers a compelling mix of a world-class education grounded in an ethos of social justice and service.  Saint Michael’s is featured in the Princeton Review’s Best 384 Colleges recognized as a Green College.  Money magazine noted Saint Michael’s as one of the Top 50 Transformative Colleges, and Kiplinger’s ranks Saint Michael’s among the Best College Values.  


    The Academic Program

    Saint Michael’s students engage across a broad spectrum of subjects and the faculty is fully focused on teaching.  Classes are small (the student to faculty ratio is 13:1) and majors and minors are available in more than 40 fields of study.  These studies, coupled with experiential learning opportunities, international study, internships and collaboration with faculty on research projects, prepare students well for their first jobs and satisfying careers.  

    Saint Michael’s Academic Centers provide a vital and lively intellectual home where students, faculty, staff, and the community can connect for better understanding and interdisciplinary learning.  The Centers include the Edmundite Center for Faith and Culture, The Center for Women and Gender, The Edmundite Center for Peace and Justice, the Multicultural Center, The Humanities Center, and the VT EPSCoR Center for Workforce Development and Diversity.

    The graduate programs at Saint Michael’s include Clinical Psychology, Education, and TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).  The graduate programs are small, flexible, affordable, and tailored to the goals of the graduate students.  


    Campus Life

    Our students can take advantage of enriching programs, athletic events, theater, the recreation and fitness centers, the beauty of the Burlington area and more.  The St. Mike's Adventure Sports Center is a great way to stay active and engage in the Saint Michael’s community. The program offers training and outings in kayaking, climbing, skiing/riding and mountain biking. In addition, the program offers training as an instructor in any of the activities offered and to the chance to be a member of the Adventure Sports Center staff.  Among the student activities is a unique and remarkable volunteer organization begun at Saint Michael’s in 1969 — the Fire and Rescue Squad.  An independent volunteer group of students, they have taken on the responsibility of serving the public 365 days per year, 24 hours a day by providing fire and emergency medical treatment both on campus and in the community.   

    Service is at the heart of a Saint Michael’s experience; nearly 70 percent of its students participate in Mobilization of Volunteer Efforts (MOVE), which exists to expand the concept of community service to embrace social justice and to emphasize our connectedness to the world, as defined by Catholic social teaching.

    Most students live on campus and housing is guaranteed for four years.  The options include over a dozen residence halls and townhouses.  

    Twenty-five percent of the St. Mike students play a varsity sport on one or more of the 21 varsity teams.  Saint Michael’s competes as an NCAA Division II institution.  Varsity sports include Alpine and Nordic skiing as well as ice hockey, and range from basketball and baseball to lacrosse and soccer, to name a few.  Student athletes at Saint Michael’s have a near 100 percent student-athlete graduation rate.  

    St. Mike’s is a green campus, and is committed to strengthening its obligation to a socially and ecologically responsible world.  The campus community works together to recycle, to compost, to refill and reuse water bottles, and to tend the Saint Michael’s Farm, an organic garden and farm stand operated during the growing season.
