  • General Information
    About Bethel College

    Bethel College is a four-year liberal arts college in south central Kansas. It is the oldest Mennonite college in North America, founded in 1887 for the advancement of postsecondary education in a Christian community. It is affiliated with Mennonite Church USA. Bethel is a self-governing, independent legal corporation with close ties to its constituent churches and communities. By tradition and by choice, Bethel College continues to base its mission on its Anabaptist and academic identity. Bethel seeks to be a diverse community of learners, committed to the search for authentic faith and empirical understanding, and to provide (1) rigorous instruction in the liberal arts and selected career and professional areas; and (2) intellectual, cultural and spiritual leaders for the church and society. To those ends the College maintains a residential environment designed to foster integrative learning experiences, including student organizations, campus worship services, public lectures, symposia and cultural events.

    Institutional statistical data was gathered from the U.S. Department of Education - Institute of Education Sciences, National Center for Education Statistics, 2009-2010.
