Falling Into Place

Barnard never slows down, and the 2018–19 academic year has been no exception: The Milstein Center for Teaching and Learning is now open, the Class of 2022 is settling into life at Barnard, Beyond Barnard is thriving, and the search for a new Dean of the College is underway. To say campus is buzzing from excitement would be an understatement! It’s been great to have so many alumnae back in Morningside Heights for programming and events, and we hope to see even more of you as the year continues. Here are some highlights so far:
