- Barat College began as an academy for young women in Chicago in 1858 and moved to its Lake Forestlocation in 1904. In 1918, the State of Illinois chartered Barat as a four-year college, and in 1982, Barat became aco-educational institution. To qualify for federal financial programs, governance of the college passed from the Society ofthe Sacred Heart to an independent Board of Trustees in 1969. In February 2001, because of fiscal concerns, Barat Collegeformed an educational alliance with DePaul University; and while Barat College remained a separate institution, the Baratcampus became a campus in the DePaul University system.
