An important part of a liberal arts education is the learning that occurs through association with people of differing backgrounds. Bethel College is committed to offering you a diverse campus culture that reflects a range of racial, cultural and ethnic traditions.
We aim to foster a campus community characterized by compassion, respect, ethical concern and social responsibility. By living among people of sometimes radically divergent ways of thinking, you can learn to evaluate your own background against new ideas and ways of relating to others. In our Bethel College community, we value the richness that comes from a range of individual differences, including dimensions of age, culture, education, ethnicity, exceptionalities, gender, geographical origin, language, politics, race, religion, sexual orientation and socioeconomic status.
