Barnard announced a new opportunity for students whose interests lie in engineering to complete both a Bachelor of Arts from Barnard and Master of Science degree from Columbia University’s Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science—making Barnard one of the the first colleges for women to offer a program of this kind.

Since last May, Barnard faculty members were awarded major research grants that support a diverse array of interests, enabling them to continue existing studies and support collaborations with other institutions.

Barnard celebrated the grand opening of The Cheryl and Philip Milstein Center for Teaching and Learning on October 3, 2018.
