Principles of Berry - Page 6

Berry College should offer students a strong, balanced education featuring rigorous academic preparation, meaningful work experience, and opportunities for religious growth.


The curriculum should include subjects in arts, sciences, and professional areas with emphasis on preparing students for useful and rewarding careers.

Work experience is an integral part of a Berry education, and an opportunity to work is offered to all students. Work is also an important part of the financial aid package offered to Berry students.

Religious emphasis is recognized as a basic feature of the Berry program, beginning with the founding of the institution and reaffirmed in the current charter. The Christian commitment, described in Berry's charter, is expressed in the college's motto, "Not to be ministered unto, but to minister."

It is the policy of Berry College not to discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment because of race, creed, color, sex, age, religion, disability, national or ethnic origin. The evaluation of applicants for employment will be based upon aptitude, ability, qualifications, and personal characteristics which are related to their expected proficiency and performance.
