As educators, Barnard embraces an educational philosophy that is as inclusive as it is rigorous. In addition to its bedrock commitment to educating promising women, the College has historically reached out to other students who may be stymied by access and/or achievement gap issues, as well as stereotype. Barnard participates in many community partnerships and initiatives, and has historically provided resources including funds, facilities, and time. This includes annual contributions and organized volunteer opportunities to area organizations focused on education.
