Media Relations

Barnard’s Media Relations team works to raise the profile of the College by identifying and promoting people, events and news in our community.  Whether we are focusing on faculty research or spotlighting student success, we publicize achievements through targeted press outreach and a strong online presence.      

We also serve as a liaison to media—pitching stories, fielding media inquiries, coordinating logistics for interviews, providing pre-interview prep, accompanying faculty to broadcast studios, monitoring for coverage, and providing media training on an ongoing basis. 

Additionally, we develop stories for Barnard’s website and other publications, and monitor for interesting news about students, faculty and alumnae.

Barnard’s media relations team is available to assist journalists seeking institutional information, connections with academic experts, or featuring a Barnard student.  Please visit the Pressroom to learn more about Barnard, or submit a a media request online
