Meet Your Alumna Mentor

Spanning a gamut of industries and experiences, alumnae in the world of work can offer invaluable advice as you define and pursue your purpose.

The Return of Wonder Women

Barnard’s remarkable alumnae come back to campus as speakers and guest teachers, sharing their brilliance with new generations of Barnard women. Some past visitors: Edwidge Danticat, Ntozake Shange, and Twyla Tharp.

After going out into the world as bold Barnard women, alums stay in touch long after graduation. Powerful, dynamic, and unique, Barnard connections provide encouragement and friendship for years to come.
