Barry's Ecological Sustainability Team (BEST)

One critical aspect of Barry's Core Commitments is an expectation that all members of the Barry community "recognize the sacredness of Earth." This commitment has re-invigorated a spirit of respect for nature and a desire to reduce human consequences to nature. It has also sparked the development of new and renewed ecological sustainability efforts throughout the University at the President's request.

The purpose of Barry's Ecological Sustainability Team (BEST) is to address environmental issues and to increase sustainability throughout all of the Barry University campuses and facilities through efforts such as recycling, double-sided printed or paperless correspondence, reduced energy consumption, education and awareness of ecological impacts, and promotion of Earth-friendly practices.

Every April, Barry University joins nations, organizations and individuals around the world to celebrate Earth Day as a means to create awareness and a call to action to live sustainably and protect God's creation.
