The Leadership Development office recognizes that leadership occurs in many settings. With this in mind, our staff is dedicated to identifying, reinforcing, and cultivating the skills that Barnard women in order to be effective leaders on campus, in New York City, and throughout the world. We seek to do so with signature initiatives which include the Emerging Leaders Program, and the F.U.E.L workshops, as well as many programs in collaboration with other departments on campus. Leadership Development believes that leadership in the workforce is also valuable skill and, as such provides an opportunity for students to grow by being part of the building management team.
