Cross Cultural Opportunities

Bethel College has a global vision for its students to not only learn about the world, but also to go abroad, experience new cultures, and serve others.



The Global Engagement Office exists to enable students to move beyond their current cultural, spiritual, academic and relational contexts. Through short-term and semester-length trips, students encounter fresh cultural experiences and service opportunities designed to challenge them academically, stretch their global outlook, and spur them on spiritually, all while growing in Christian community.
