Bethel University is an educational community committed to the integration of evangelical faith with learning. A statement called A Covenant for Life Together has been adopted to help clarify how Christian faith informs and guides the lives and actions of members of the Bethel community. This document interprets the values by which Bethel has chosen to define itself and is intended to facilitate growth, development, and learning. Although some of these values relate to the developmental stages of traditional students and are not necessarily the norm for all Christians, adult students are asked to honor this community statement by abstaining from the use of tobacco, alcohol, and profane language on the campus and at off-campus class sites. A copy of A Covenant for Life Together is available from the Office of the Vice President and Dean of the College of Adult & Professional Studies and Graduate School.
