Teaching and learning from the mission of Bethany College. Central to this is providing a liberal arts education for students, including preparing professionals in an atmosphere of study, work, and service. In its original charter, the mission of Bethany College was "the instruction of youth in the various branches of science and literature, the useful arts and the learned and foreign languages."
Founder Alexander Campbell set the CollegeCollege's purpose to prepare students to become useful and responsible members of society by liberating them from superstition and ignorance, others' tyranny, and "vulgar prejudices." Upon graduation, Campbell envisioned that students would become their teachers and pupils and continue their education throughout life.
Today, Bethany College continues to follow that same mission to educate users, honorable, humane, and intelligent citizens who believe in and will promote the creation of a world of worth and value, integrating critical reason with the convictions of faith, personal accomplishment with ethical responsibility, and individual development with service to others.
