Nine students in Barnard’s inaugural Computer Science Summer Research Program worked with Barnard and Columbia professors on projects that ranged from improving inclusivity to healthcare.

Three Barnard alumnae — Brenda Aiken ’77 ’81PS, Maryam Banikarim ’89 ’93SIPA ’93BUS, and Jolyne Caruso-FitzGerald ’81 — are among the 10 alumni to be honored with a 2019 Columbia Alumni Medal at the University Commencement on May 22, 2019.

Barnard announced a new opportunity for students whose interests lie in public health to complete both a Bachelor of Arts from Barnard and Master of Public Health degree from Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health in five years — enabling Barnard students to decrease the length of time to obtain an MPH by one full academic year. Columbia’s Mailman School of Public Health is ranked as a top-tier institution in its field, presenting a unique opportunity for Barnard students.
