Since its founding in 1889, Barnard has been a distinguished leader in higher education, offering a rigorous liberal arts foundation to young women whose curiosity, drive, and exuberance set them apart. Ours is a diverse intellectual community in a unique learning environment that provides the best of all worlds: small, intimate classes in a collaborative setting dedicated to the advancement of women with the vast resources of Columbia University just steps away—all in the heart of vibrant and electric New York City. And no matter where our students come from or where they are heading, they share a boundless passion for learning inspired by our esteemed faculty.

Barnard College believes that supporting diversity is both an individual and institutional responsibility that we must practice every day. As a community, we cross boundaries of background and identity to find shared experiences and to open minds—and we come together to ensure that all feel safe, valued, and understood.
