Welcome to the Governing Board at Barnard


Register for Club ReFuel

Time: 8:30am-3:00pm
Where: Barnard College, LeFrak Gymnasium
 
We hope you had a successful day of outreach during Activities Day 2014! As the excitement builds to begin campus programming, we wanted to touch base and clarify a few things regarding the upcoming Club ReFuel program. 
 
How to register: The only way to register your club/organization for Club ReFuel is through the Eventbrite online system. You must sign up in advance to participate. To complete the registration, please use the following link: Eventbrite
 
Who should attend: Every recognized student organization must have at least 2 (but no more than 3) representatives attend Club ReFuel!
 
Given the amount of financial information covered during Club ReFuel it is strongly advised that groups send the organization treasurer as the primary or secondary representative.
 
Please be sure to connect with your fellow club leaders to determine who will be the primary and secondary representatives for your student organization at Club ReFuel. If you are on the e-board for multiple groups, please remember that you are only permitted to register as the primary representative for one organization!
 
Keep in mind that attendance is required if your group plans to program on the Barnard or Columbia campuses. 
 
We look forward to seeing you this Friday!
 
Sincerely,
Columbia Undergraduate Student Life & Barnard Student Life

Mission

The Governing Board at Barnard (GBB) upholds the values of Barnard College by promoting the personal and intellectual development of students as leaders. We hold GBB clubs and their members to the high expectations of Barnard College: rigorous standards, self-awareness, holistic learning, and social accountability. Reflective of the Barnard mission statement, GBB believes that participation and leadership in student clubs will empower students “to achieve the personal strength that will enable them to meet the challenges they will encounter throughout their lives.” We strive to provide a strong sense of community and dedication to student life on Barnard's campus.

 

Purpose

The Governing Board at Barnard (GBB) is dedicated to representing, advocating for, and recognizing clubs at Barnard College. GBB supports clubs’ efforts to promote student activity and learning outside of the classroom. We collaborate with the other members of the Student Leadership Collective (SGA and McAC), the Barnard administration, and other governing boards of Columbia University to maximize campus opportunities and events for the greater student body. GBB recognizes groups with members from all undergraduate schools at Columbia University and enriches communities at Barnard and Columbia by providing resources to connect students through clubs, organizations, and events.
