ADA Statement for Syllabi: The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a law which provides civil rights protection for people with disabilities. Bethel University, in compliance with equal access laws, requests that students with disabilities seeking to acquire accommodations make an appointment with the Center for Academic Success—Disability Services. It is located in the Miller-Moore Academic Center, 033. You may also phone 574-807-7460 or email for an appointment.

DEI Statement

During this particularly difficult time, this statement momentarily underscores and deepens what is expressed in the Lifestyle Covenant regarding the dignity of all humans. The statement will remain in all Bethel Faculty syllabi until spring 2023 and then be remanded back to the Faculty. Bethel University respects the dignity of all God’s image-bearers, and stands against racism, prejudice, and discrimination. Because Christ calls us to love our neighbor as ourselves, Christian discipleship includes pursuing the good of those who suffer injustice due to their color, race, or ethnicity. Therefore, we aim to continually transform our classrooms into safe and hospitable spaces where we listen to one another with mercy, learn from and value each other with tenacity, and commit to pursuing justice for the most vulnerable in our community.
