Bethel College is affiliated with Mennonite Church USA. Though Mennonites represent the largest single denomination at Bethel, more than two-thirds of our students come from backgrounds other than Mennonite. Bethel's mission is "to prepare students for meaningful lives of work and service through faith formation, the liberal arts, and practical experience in career pathways." Distinctive elements of a Bethel education include requirements in cross-cultural learning; peace; justice and conflict studies; and Bible and religion. Among Bethel's seven core values are high standards and expectations for behavior and performance; dialogue that transforms conflict; creative approaches for living harmoniously; and community with global consciousness. A Templeton Character Building College and one of only eight colleges to be listed in Mother Jones as a college that combines "great values with good value."
