Event Description

Join us for the installation ceremony of the sixth president of Bethel University, Ross Allen. 

A 1984 graduate of the College of Arts & Sciences, Ross has spent his career helping organizations transform their financial results and advance their mission and vision. During his 25-year tenure at Medtronic—a multinational medical device company—he used his strategic, relational, and operational expertise to lead seven successful corporate transformations in Denmark, Switzerland, and across the United States. In his most recent position as chief financial officer and vice president for business and finance at Azusa Pacific University, Ross played an instrumental role in positioning the institution for a strong and vibrant future. 

Ross is a deeply committed Christ-follower, a seasoned executive leader, and a transformative developer of people, culture, and organizations. We are thrilled to welcome him back to Bethel!

Following the installation ceremony, guests may attend an invitation-only lunch celebrating President Ross Allen's inauguration.
