"The Barnard Faculty consists of scholar-teachers who have long recognized that their teaching depends upon their scholarship and grows out of it. The range of the Barnard curriculum fairly reflects this understanding, both in its concentration upon the traditional disciplines of learning and in its innovative interdisciplinary programs. The scholarly commitment of the Barnard Faculty is constantly shown, too, in the variety and quality of its many research projects, its books and articles in learned journals, its participation in academic societies, its many different kinds of publications and performance. But its abiding achievement is a constant demonstration in the classroom of the binding ties of teaching and scholarship to each other which simply will not accept the possibility of any serious conflict between them. For in these central functions, Barnard's scholar-teachers honor the enduring values of their profession."
