National Alumni Board

How does Bethel stay in tune with our alumni? We've formed an advisory group to help ensure we're meeting your needs. As an advisory group, they serve as your voice – coming together from across the country and across generations to represent Bethel alumni.

Bethel University alumni who serve on the National Alumni Board (NAB) are dedicated to living out the mission of Bethel and extending the reach of Bethel to impact our community. To them, Bethel is more than just the school that gave them a degree; it's where they grew in faith and built lifelong relationships. Because of their strong Bethel roots, they are passionate about building relationships with our 50,000+ alumni who are serving Christ worldwide. NAB members serve our alumni from the College of Arts & Sciences, the College of Adult & Professional Studies, the Graduate School and the Seminary.

What We Do

Meeting 3 times a year, the NAB helps:

  • Give feedback on new initiatives and ideas
  • Review Alumna/Alumnus of the Year candidates
  • Cultivate relationships with alumni through Advancement, Event and Admissions initiatives

Who We Are

Beyond serving on the NAB, we're also dedicated prayer partners and donors – continually advancing the mission, vision, and values of the university.
