Good Neighbor Challenge

What is the Culture of Belonging?

It's having a deeper understanding of ourselves. It's being equipped to better understand and love the people around us. It's a culture that aspires to reach the Beloved Community Dr. King spoke about. It's a Good Neighbor Culture. And it takes a commitment from all of our community members to achieve.

good-neighbor-challenge-graphicThe Office of the President and the Office of Diversity and Belonging present The Good Neighbor Challenge: an initiative that equips Berry College community members with tools to be better neighbors. Berry students, staff and faculty can choose to be part of the Good Neighbor Challenge by being a participant or a leader. Participants and leaders will engage in meaningful experiences and trainings, and in addition to learning more about themselves and others, will earn some awesome swag. Leaders also have the opportunity to earn a certificate from the King Center and the Office of Diversity and Belonging. View our full GNC packet.
