On Nov. 8, the board of directors of the Higher Learning Commission officially notified Bethel that it has removed the college from the status of being “on Notice” and reaffirmed its accreditation.

The HLC board determined Bethel was no longer at risk of being out of compliance with criteria for accreditation.

“I would like to thank the Bethel Board of Directors for their support,” said President Jon Gering.

“Their practical ideas and commitment to the overall success of the college were critical to our strategic response.”

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).
