Bellevue University was founded with the military in mind, said Jason Keese, public relations coordinator for Bellevue. “Bellevue University was founded in 1966 to, in large part, serve the military personnel located at nearby Offutt Air Force Base. More than 40 years later, the University’s commitment remains the same,” Keese also said. Bellevue serves over 1,800 active military service members through their Military Department.
