When the Bethel Board of Directors convenes its spring meetings in early April, two new members will be joining for the first time.

Cynthia (Alexander) Doyle Perkins, Indianapolis, and Rev. Faith Allen, Kansas City, Mo., both board appointments, began their terms on Jan. 1.       

Both are Bethel graduates in education (Doyle Perkins in what was then called Health, Physical Education and Recreation, and Allen in English) whose vocations have since taken them in different directions.

President Jon Gering announced Feb. 1 that the college is starting the process toward developing a new strategic plan, with members of the Strategic Planning Committee now named.

In an e-mail sent to faculty and staff, Gering asked for nominations and expressions of interest for the committee, and briefly recalled the history of the previous plan.

Like most boards across the country, Bethel College’s Board of Directors held its spring 2020 meetings via videoconference, April 2-4.

One significant decision was approval of a new major, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, pending subsequent approval by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), Bethel’s accrediting body, which it did in mid-April.

This move reflects one of the strongest career interests in both prospective students and current students, that of health-care sector professions (such as medicine, dentistry, physical therapy and optometry).
