Bethel Advance is more than a partnership program. It's championing education, connecting resources, and collaborating with the community. 

Through Bethel Advance, we are: 

  • changing the face of P-12 and higher education relationships by being more collaborative, attentive, and responsive to the changing needs of all students.
  • making connections amongst Bethel students, Education Department alumni, Bethel faculty and departments, teacher educators and school administrators, and metro schools and districts.
  • helping others give back to the teaching profession by sharing knowledge and expertise, hosting student teaching placements, and attending events to earn CEUs.
  • supporting current students by hosting career-ready events such as the Principal Panel, interviews, and a graduation celebration.
  • supporting graduates by sponsoring alumni activities and providing opportunities for continued professional growth.
