Great Commitment #7: Supportive & Sustainable Living
“To maintain a residential campus and to encourage in all community members a way of life characterized by the mindful and sustainable living, health and wellness, zest for learning, high personal standards, and a concern for the welfare of others.”
Berea College recognizes the inherent educational value of the Full Residence Hall experience. Our Residence Halls are microcosms of those communities in which students will live and work throughout their lives.
By engaging students in a process of where they can create communities, they will develop these valuable life skills:
- conflict resolution and
- consensus building.
The basis of the residential experience is a shared sense of common good. Students should learn to value that common good and seek to create it throughout their lives.
