The Office of the Dean of Studies supports the academic planning and success, academic integrity, and well-being of all Barnard College students, and supports the teaching and advising efforts of our faculty members. Our office includes:

  • The academic Class Deans and support staff, who provide students guidance in developing their educational plans and making thoughtful and informed decisions about their life goals;
  • The Registrar and support staff, who implement the College’s policies and procedures, and maintain the institution’s academic records; and
  • A dedicated team that supports first generation and low-income students in discovering their own capabilities through such programs such as HEOP and CSTEP, and helps these students identify opportunities that will enrich and complement their intellectual life at Barnard.
