Student Labor and Sustainability
All Berea College students are required to work at least 10 hours a week in various campus departments in the Labor Program. The College’s Workplace Expectations for all employees and labor students articulate Berea’s mission and values in the workplace, and they include an expectation to “encourage plain and sustainable living” by “promoting a sustainable way of life through policies, procedures and practices in the workplace.”
There are several student labor departments and positions that are responsible for promoting/implementing sustainability in the curriculum and campus operations, such as theSustainability and Environmental Studies (SENS) Program, Ecovillage, HEAL, Recycling Program, and College Farms, Gardens, and Greenhouses.
