Our motto is “God has made of one blood all peoples of the earth” (Acts 17:26) because it reminds us that all people deserve the opportunity to succeed.Berea College was the first racially integrated and coeducational college in the South. We have a long history of practicing equality and acceptance of all people.
Students can always learn from another’s perspective. And we make sure this learning occurs by bringing together students from many different ethnicities, races, and nationalities.
The people you meet and learn from at Berea will prepare you for your life beyond Berea—and the many different people you will surely meet along the way.
