Cultural Events criteria


Applications for CE credit are approved by a majority vote of the CE Committee based on the following criteria:

  • Expose students to significant events from the areas of Arts, Sciences and Humanities that faculty and the administration believe best represent the literary, philosophical, and artistic traditions for which Berry as an institution is responsible;

  • Provide students an opportunity to make contact with the issues and personalities of contemporary America and other cultures;

  • Promote moral and ethical reasoning, and;

  • Enable students to participate as fully as possible in the intellectual and spiritual tradition of Berry College.

  • Examples of events which fall outside the compass of the Cultural Events criteria (or are logistically unworkable) include: 

  • Sporting or recreational events
  • Worship services or worship meetings
  • Personal counseling
  • Sales presentations
  • Regular meetings of Student Government Association or other student organizations
  • Presentation of student course work (unless led/moderated by credentialed presenters)
  • Events that are part of a regularly-scheduled class activity
  • Events without a defined duration (open, drop-in, etc.)
