Bethany Seminary is continuing to closely monitor The COVID-19 pandemic, and we are adjusting our response accordingly.
Bethany Center is currently closed to the public. All employees are encouraged to work from home. Teaching faculty are to teach from their homes and not travel to Bethany Center. Residential students continue to have access to their residences in the Bethany Neighborhood, but they must self-quarantine if they travel away from campus. A quarantine shelter has been set up for any residential students who need such a facility.
After careful consideration, we have decided to postpone Commencement Ceremonies, originally scheduled for May 8-9, 2020, and reschedule them at a later date, possibly in the fall. Seminary leadership continues to meet daily to asses the situation and consider any needed changes to our operations. Classes continue to meet via Zoom, employees continue to work from home, and together everyone at Bethany remains committed to fulfilling our educational mission as best we can during these unprecedented circumstances. In light of the need for community members to stay at home and practice social distancing, the Seminary is offering students, faculty and staff special opportunities for worship and fellowship via video conferencing.
If you have questions about the Seminary’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, please contact Jonathan Graham, director of marketing and communications, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 765-983-1825.
