Bethel College was named a Champions of Character Five-Star Institution for the 2012-13 school year, the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) announced Nov. 19.
This is the fourth consecutive year Bethel received the honor, along with 216 other colleges and universities.
All 23 NAIA member athletic conferences, including the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference (KCAC), of which Bethel is a member, made the Five-Star list as well.
The KCAC was one of eight NAIA member conferences to have 100 percent of its schools named Champions of Character Five-Star Institutions.
The NAIA uses a Champions of Character Scorecard to measure each institution’s commitment to the Champions of Character program. Institutions earn points in five key areas: character training, conduct in competition, academic focus, character recognition and character promotion.
