Campus Master Plan 2011-12

The primary purpose of the Campus Master Plan project is to improve the student, staff, and faculty experience at Bethel through a long-term plan for future facility needs that is true to our identity and consistent with our strategic priorities.

Our partners at Performa Higher Education, who have extensive experience in campus planning for private institutions like Bethel, are guiding us through the planning process.
