Cultural Diversity: A Biblical Paradigm

Commitment to Diversity

According to the Bethel College Strategic Plan, “Bethel College will provide for its campus community, biblically-based diverse opportunities consistent with the college’s commitment to a Christian worldview.” Following a three year assessment and implementation process in collaboration with the consulting firm of Salter, McNeil and associates, Bethel College is actively engaged in an intercultural competence initiative.

Intercultural Competence

The college defines intercultural competence as “the ability to comprehend, appreciate, accept, and effectively communicate with all God’s people through active engagement of diverse cultures and their ways of perceiving, thinking, feeling, and acting in order to continue learning from one another.”
