Brooks College Community Covenant
During the Summer and Fall of 2007, a Community Covenant which captures the essence of what it means to be a member of Brooks College was developed under the leadership of the College Council. Each year's residential membership in the college is invited to sign a copy of the original document in our annual Brooks College Retreat.
The original Community Covenant reads:
“We, the members of Brooks College, seek to live meaningful lives by learning to know and love our Creator, ourselves, and our community. We unite ourselves in the pursuit of intellectual, moral, and spiritual excellence, and we pledge to honor the foundational Christian faith of this institution. We cherish life as a gift and sacred stewardship, and we accept the duty to nurture self-understanding, personal integrity, and authenticity in all that we do. We commit ourselves to the ideal of charity, embracing the responsibilities of life together, offering service without expectation of return, remaining loyal amidst difficulty, and upholding the traditions of our college and university."
