Beulah Heights University says

It is my distinct honor to welcome you to Beulah Heights University. In the more than 25 years since I first joined Beulah Heights University as a student, I have witnessed an enormous amount of change. Of course, change for its own sake has little value. On the other hand, change that flows from wisely managed growth is, by its very nature, a positive thing. While at Beulah Heights University, I have watched a good, up-and-coming university transform itself into an exceptional one. Now, as President, I am very proud to be ushering in an era that promises an even greater leap ahead.

Positive growth requires a solid foundation to build on. BHU, which has just celebrated its 93rd anniversary, has such a foundation. Our core principles are simply stated: Biblical inerrancy, Integrity, Global Missions, Dedicated Servant hood, and Diversity. These principles guide us as clearly today as they ever did.

We have now reached a pivotal point in our growth when we can claim a corps of graduates whose age and level of accomplishment can truly sustain our efforts. Now is the time for action. We need to invest in more scholarships that will continue to attract the best students, and we need to invest in faculty and teaching excellence. These are signal changes for Beulah Heights University, and we must build on these strengths.

On behalf of the Faculty, Staff, and Board of Trustees of Beulah Heights University, please accept our sincere gratitude for taking the initial step to visit us. There is much to do, but such is the excitement at this moment in BHU history. Please think about how you can become a part of this. The rewards will be profound - for our students, our faculty, our community, our world, and for you.
