At Barnard, each and every member of our community has access to the information and tools they need to achieve financial well-being in every aspect and at every stage of their lives. Here, students, alumnae, faculty, staff, and our neighbors in Morningside Heights can learn how to manage their personal finances, build the habits and the community they need to achieve financial well-being, and dream up and build a better future.
Opening in 2023, the Francine A. LeFrak Foundation Center for Well-Being’s physical space will unite these crucial offerings, with spaces for 1:1 consultations, group meetings, and more.
Our financial education programs include workshops and mini-courses for all levels of knowledge and provide tools, tips and guidance you can use to develop financial fluency and start building a stronger financial foundation for the future today.
