Climate change is one of the most pressing challenges of our time. The College is preparing students to meet these challenges through a three-fold strategy.

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.

Barnard's divestment working group has outlined six criteria that can be used to judge a company’s attitudes and behaviors with respect to climate science and climate change.

Barnard will apply the criteria in its unique approach of divesting from climate change deniers.
