Event Description

Bethel University is proud to announce that Chad Schwitters has been selected as the 2016 Bethel University College of Arts & Sciences Alumnus of the Year. Chad graduated from Bethel in 1995 with a B.A. in business. He currently serves as executive director of Urban Homeworks, a Minneapolis community development organization he’s led since 1999. The city-based nonprofit strives to perpetuate the hope of Jesus through innovative community development and by embracing core values that emphasize compassion, dignity, relationships, reconciliation, and biblical justice.

Invited guests: We will celebrate Chad and his service to others and the Kingdom at the Alum of the Year Honoree Dinner on Thursday, September 29. The evening will begin with an hors d’oeuvres reception and award presentation from 6 to 6:40 p.m. in the Alumni Lounge, followed by the dinner and program from 6:45 to 8 p.m. in Olson Boardroom. If you received an invitation to this dinner, please RSVP.

All friends and community members: Chad will also be our featured speaker for Homecoming Chapel in Benson Great Hall at 10:15 a.m. on Friday, September 30. That afternoon, everyone is invited to attend an engaging Q&A session with Chad from 2 to 3 p.m. in the Bethel Underground. No RSVP is needed for chapel or the Q&A session.
