- Barnard College provides the highest quality liberal arts education to promising and high-achieving young women, offering the unparalleled advantages of an outstanding residential college in partnership with a major research university. With a dedicated faculty of scholars distinguished in their respective fields, Barnard is a community of accessible teachers and engaged students who participate together in intellectual risk-taking and discovery. Barnard students develop the intellectual resources to take advantage of opportunities as new fields, new ideas, and new technologies emerge. They graduate prepared to lead lives that are professionally satisfying and successful, personally fulfilling, and enriched by love of learning.
- Enrolled at Barnard are 2,360 undergraduates from throughout the nation, almost all 50 states and more than 40 countries, who take degrees in more than 50 fields in the humanities, social sciences, arts, natural sciences, and interdisciplinary areas. Eleven percent of Barnard students are African-American or Latina. Twenty percent are Asian. The College is known for the achievement of its graduates. Barnard ranks third among more than 1,000 undergraduate colleges for the number of graduates who earned Ph.D.'s between 1920 and 1995; first among graduates of chemistry programs who go on to teach chemistry at the college level; and its 29,000 graduates have written over 3,000 books and earned seven Pulitzer Prizes.
- Barnard's neighborhood, Morningside Heights, is essentially a university town. Neighboring institutions include the Manhattan School of Music, Teachers College, Bank Street College of Education, Union Theological Seminary, and Jewish Theological Seminary.
- Barnard College is an independent partner of Columbia University. Barnard students are integral members of the University community, and students on both campuses may cross-register for classes and participate in joint activities, including varsity athletics, outside the classroom.
