Tabor College is a four-year private Christian liberal arts college in Hillsboro, Kansas, United States. Tabor is currently owned and operated by the Mennonite Brethren Church and follows the confession of faith of that church.

Preparing people for a life of learning, work, and service for Christ and His Kingdom.

Established in 1908 by those of the Mennonite Brethren and Krimmer Mennonite Brethren faiths, Tabor�s doors were first opened with 39 students and three instructors. Before the end of that school year, enrollment skyrocketed to 104. Sadly, a fire destroyed the building that housed the College for its first ten years. But supporters of the College quickly joined together and built two new buildings: a dormitory-dining hall and an administration-classroom building. These buildings � the Mary J. Regier Building and the H.W. Lohrenz Building � are still in use today. While Tabor College has continued to be affiliated with the Mennonite Brethren Church, changes have been made in the organizational structure from time to time. The Tabor College Corporation owned and operated the College until 1934 when ownership was transferred to the Board of Trustees of the Conference of the Mennonite Brethren Church of North America. The College now operates under our own charter. Our Board of Directors is responsible to the Mennonite Brethren churches of the Central, Southern, Latin America, and North Carolina districts. Tabor College also formed an extension of the main institution when Tabor College Wichita opened offices in 1993 and the first classes began the following year. Undergraduate and graduate degrees have been offered in Wichita. As a college that is owned and operated by the Mennonite Brethren Church, Tabor College accepts and seeks to follow the Confession of Faith of the General Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches, adopted in 1975 and subsequently revised. Mennonite Brethren doctrines are in agreement with those of most evangelical Christians.
