Bethel University is committed to principles that enable the educational and professional enhancement of men and women of all ethnic and racial groups.
Bethel seeks to emphasize the importance of being an authentically diverse community in pursuit of growth, awareness, and appreciation of both our own diversity as well as that which exists in the broader world. Bethel will not tolerate racial or ethnic harassment by or against its students, faculty, or staff. All community members must comply with this policy, whether on campus or off campus, when engaged in activities sponsored by Bethel, or otherwise related to Bethel or its business. Such activities include, but are not limited to classes, seminars, meetings, and study abroad programs. In addition, visitors, volunteers, vendors, consultants, third parties, or any person that provides services to Bethel are required to comply with the provisions of this policy.
If a member of the Bethel community has a concern or has become aware of an instance of possible racial or ethnic harassment involving a student, faculty or staff member, the Compliance Officer must be contacted immediately. Bethel will investigate and take prompt corrective action against any racial or ethnic harassment by or against its community members. Bethel has adopted the following harassment policy and procedures as a basis for community guidance, education, and complaint resolution.
