A Vision for the Future


The heritage and future of Bethany Lutheran College are firmly rooted in the Christian faith. Indeed, the future is at the heart of Bethany's tag line—"Education That Lasts Beyond A Lifetime." To educate students in the knowledge of Christ and His desire to have all join Him for eternity is the enduring purpose of Bethany Lutheran College.

The immediate future of Bethany Lutheran College is also grounded in faith. Faith that will sustain the College's mission, faith that will permeate the lives of the students, faculty, and staff of Bethany Lutheran College, and faith that will allow the College to carry out its mission.

Bethany Lutheran College is very thankful that previous capital campaigns provided the resources to lay the foundation for the College to launch its journey as a four-year baccalaureate granting institution. A well laid foundation, however, is just the first step needed to bring Bethany successfully into the competitive arena of American baccalaureate Christian higher education. Additional academic programming, student scholarships and technological support, and enhanced and renovated facilities are critical components needed for the College to step beyond the threshold. Bethany's strategic plan for the next five years focuses on moving the college beyond that threshold.
