Welcome members of the Bellarmine community!  Thank you for your support of Bellarmine’s “Vision 2020” and Bellarmine Centro, the most transformational capital project in Bellarmine history. We are thankful you have chosen to be a vital part of the Vision by supporting the final piece of the effort – the new McGowan Hall within Bellarmine Centro.

Bellarmine Centro will be a campus center comprised of the new 47,300-square-foot McGowan Hall, a completely renovated Horrigan Hall, and a light-filled atrium connecting the two. The first floor of McGowan Hall is complete and the Horrigan Hall renovation is nearly finished. Centro now houses a new welcome and admissions center, a new career center, a new center for campus ministry, and two new classrooms. With your support, we will finish the upper two floors of McGowan Hall. These floors will serve as the home for the Rubel School of Business and the new Institute for Advanced Analytics. They will also provide new multipurpose classrooms that will increase Bellarmine’s teaching capacity.

You are a Part of the Vision: McGowan Hall Stones


McGowan Hall will be the most visible location on campus and its main entrance will be the true front door of our University. As you approach McGowan Hall, you will cross a grand stone plaza. We thank you for your commitment to personalizing a stone in this plaza. There are two stone options available.

In appreciation for a $25,000 gift (can be a five-year, $5000/year pledge) you can personalize an 12-inch square stone with 8 lines of text and 20 characters per line.

In appreciation for a $10,000 gift (can be a five-year, $2,000/year pledge) you can personalize an 8-inch square stone with 6 lines of text and 20 characters per line.
