Across the Morningside Heights campus, at the Empire State Building (lit up in Barnard Blue), and inside the majestic Riverside Church, the Barnard community united to celebrate the Inauguration of the College’s eighth president, Sian Leah Beilock. In her address, Beilock emphasized four
- science as part of the liberal arts;
- utilizing New York City’s many resources as part of a Barnard education;
- strengthening diversity and inclusivity; and
- ensuring students have the skills to succeed after graduation.
