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.
Family Engagement at Barnard
The Office of Family Engagement, staffed by Director Katelyn Dutton '14, supports Barnard students by helping their parents, guardians, and supporters navigate college life. We strive to educate family members 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 you informed so that we can help you help your students thrive at college.
