Stephanie L. Pfirman, Professor of Environmental Science and Alena Wels Hirschorn '58 and Martin Hirschorn Professor of Environmental and Applied Sciences, joined the faculty of Barnard College in 1993, and serves as co-Chair of Barnard's Department of Environmental Science.  She holds a joint appointment with Columbia University where she is a member of the faculties of the Earth Institute and the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, and an Adjunct Research Scientist at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University. Stephanie will be retiring from Barnard in July 2018 and assuming a position at Arizona State University.

Sustainability and climate action are at the heart of the College's core vision and values—which is why Barnard is taking action with sustainability practices and academic initiatives.

Professor Mark Carnes and Professor Stephanie Pfirman share the games they have created to help both students and teachers learn.

In December, 2017, and January, 2018, three members of Barnard's faculty were awarded research grants.
