Governance Documents

Berea College’s sustainability initiatives are articulated and guided by several comprehensive governance documents.  Being and Becoming, the College’s strategic plan, was originally published in 1996 and ultimately led to the creation of the academic SENS program and other formal institution-led sustainability initiatives.

With the approval and implementation of Being and Becoming, Berea College made an institutional commitment to embodying sustainability in various aspects of its overall operation, and since then, the College has made substantial strides toward becoming a “sustainable campus.”  The strategic plan was revised and approved by the faculty and trustees in spring 2006 and includes an expanded initiative addressing the sustainability of its learning and workplace environments in terms of efficiency, reflection, and human resources.

Other important guiding documents extending specific facets of the College’s strategic mission include the Campus Master Plan, Energy Use Master Plan, and Land Use Master Plan.
