Berry Land Use Registration

Download Registration Form

The ELM committee has established a registration process for the responsible and safe use of Berry College's land resources. Use of the land for academic purposes, or for other appropriate uses, is encouraged. Those wishing to do so are requested to review the Rationale section and Procedures section stated below.

In addition to educational and research programs for Berry College faculty and students, the land resource is available to students and researchers from other institutions who wish to work with Berry faculty. Several other institutions have already begun programs in collaboration with Berry. Any non-Berry user must have a Berry College faculty or staff member designated on the registration form as a formal sponsor/collaborator.

Rationale for Registration Process

The purpose of the registration process is to:

  • Encourage and enhance the use of Berry College land for all appropriate purposes.
  • Protect the work of land users from conflicting activities.
  • Decrease the likelihood of land users making poorly informed decisions.
  • Increase the safety of people using the land.

Policies and Principles for ELM Committee

  • Registration must be made on the appropriate form.
  • Each completed application should be reviewed by the committee and approved or disapproved by vote.  It is expected that the committee will meet monthly, although the committee may meet more often if needed.
  • Faculty, staff and students at Berry College should be given first priority in obtaining research approval.  Researchers and faculty outside the College may apply to use a site for research, but unauthorized use is not permitted by any individual or group. No research by any party should begin before approval for the use of a site is obtained.
  • Review of research proposals must include a review of how projects may impact other educational, research, recreational or cultural projects underway at the College. The ecological and aesthetic impact of proposed projects should be considered as an important component of consideration.
  • Research conducted on approved sites must comply with the protocol submitted for review.  In addition, researchers must comply with Berry College safety and legal policies while using the sites. Off-campus researchers have the responsibility to become informed of these policies. Failure to comply with these guidelines will result in suspension of the site approval.
  • The safety of the researchers and others should be given the highest priority when approving research projects. Research that may involve vertebrate animals must also receive approval by IACUC before the research project may be approved by this committee.
  • Any construction of semi-permanent or permanent structures as part of a research project must be approved in writing by the vice president for finance and/or the president before the research project may be approved by this committee.
  • At the end of the approved research period, materials and/or equipment brought to the site must be removed by the researcher within 15 days.
  • Areas designated for use as education and research sites (for example, the Longleaf Pine Forest) before 2013 should be maintained and are not required to reapply. However, these sites should be identified and documented by the committee as soon as possible.
