Community Expectations

As a Christ-centered community, Bethel University invites all constituents to act responsibly and humbly submit to one another with loving regard for the needs of others. We strive to elevate kingdom values over personal agendas. We acknowledge that we are all on a spectrum regarding how we view COVID-19. During these unprecedented times of a global pandemic, being together as the Bethel community means being responsible for our own health and being respectful of the health of others. The Bethel University COVID-19 Community Expectations outline how we will live in community together during this challenging season.
