University Goals and Cabinet Goals

Centering on Jesus

We strive to be a community that reflects the image and function of the kingdom of God and intentionally develops deeper relationships with Jesus Christ. We emulate Christ with our words, actions, and community practices.

Cabinet Goals

  • Seek to create a environment that reflects God’s creation, evidenced in our composition, communication and operations, where love and grace are evident

  • Value difference and model how to function effectively alongside our neighbors with love, truth, and grace

Growing Enrollment

We will grow the number of students benefiting from a Bethel experience by enhancing the clarity of our communication of Bethel’s distinctiveness and eliminating barriers to entry in transfer and enrollment processes. We will create new academic pathways, enhance affordability, and increase our capacity for academic innovation in order to grow enrollment—and, by extension, our reach and impact.

Cabinet Goals

  • Enhance operational efficiencies, clearly communicate Bethel distinctiveness, and eliminate barriers to support our engagement of and response to prospective students and their families

  • Coordinate efforts to recruit and serve students from new markets and communities

Enhance the Student Experience

We will optimize our operations and structures to develop the Bethel distinctives of excellent experiences in academics; leadership and service; clarity of calling; and spiritual formation. These will be wrapped around the love of Christ demonstrated across the community. We will do this as we help student growth, development and spiritual formation, by ensuring that the skills, passions, and experiences of all community members positively impact every student.

Annual Employee Performance Evaluations

Our annual staff employee performance season is in the Fall. 2021 Employee Performace Evaluations are due to the Office of People and Culture on December 15, 2021.

Employee Performance Evaluation: Supervisors will complete this evaluation by assigning performance ratings based on key components of the employee's Job Description. The evaluation will be presented to the staff member by their supervisor during their performance conversation. 

University Goals and Cabinet Goals needed to complete Section #4 of the Employee Performace Evaluation will be completed and posted on this page by mid-October.

If you have questions, please reference the Frequestly Asked Questions section. Supervisors can also refer to the Equip folder that was shared with them. 

New Employee Progress Reviews

The performance assessment and management process is an on-going conversation involving both the supervisor and the employee. People and Culture desires to work with you to support all employee assessment and your efforts to create a departmental culture that reflects the Bethel mission and values.

Together, the supervisor and employee will have progress conversations near the 45 and 90 days into the new role. These conversations are forward-looking and integrate the Bethel strengths-based foundation. Prior to both conversations, the employee submits their reflections and contributes to the conversation through the conversation guide. Forms will be emailed to the supervisor from human resources near each date and are also available below:
