Berea College

Berea College serves students who possess great academic promise but limited financial resources. No Berea student pays for tuition. Berea provides resources making it possible for students to graduate debt-free. All students work at least 10 hours per week in one of the most ethnically diverse liberal arts colleges in the U.S. The first college in the South to educate black and white, men and women in the same classroom, Berea continues to advocate and embody a progressive, sustainable approach to the future. Through living-and-learning environments such as the Ecovillage and Deep Green, the highest scoring Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified residence hall in the world, students engage in sustainable practices they can integrate into their communities. Berea extends educational opportunities outside the classroom through seven centers devoted to specialized, practical application of the Colleges inclusive Christian ideals. The Center for Excellence in Learning Through Service (CELTS), for example, empowers students to give back to the world in substantial and innovative ways. In addition, the college is home to initiatives such as Partners For Education, which houses eight federally funded programs (e.g., GEAR UP Appalachia and the Promise Neighborhood Initiative) designed to support Bereas commitment to serving Appalachia.Ultimately, Berea seeks to graduate service-oriented leaders for the Appalachian region and beyond.
