Office of Family Engagement

At Barnard, we believe parents and guardians are our partners as we work together to empower students to make the most of their college careers and chart their own paths.

Office of Family Engagement

The Office of Family Engagement, staffed by Director of Family Engagement & Special Assistant to the President Katelyn Dutton '14, supports Barnard students by helping Barnard parents and guardians navigate college life. Barnard strives to educate parents and families about Barnard, Columbia, and life at university in general. Whether you are curious about resources on and off campus, policies, academics, or upcoming events, the Office of Family Engagement keeps families informed so that we can help you help your students thrive at college.
