Barnard is a founding member of the New University in Exile Consortium, a group of ten schools with The New School as the lead institution. This initiative is based on the conviction that the academic community has the responsibility and capacity to assist scholars and protect the intellectual capital that is jeopardized when universities and scholars are under assault. The New UIE will also work to end government policies that would bar entry of refugee scholars. Each member has committed to hosting an endangered scholar for a minimum of two years, and the Consortium will organize seminars, workshops, and an annual conference to foster a sense of community among the scholars.
Full-time Barnard faculty members who are interested in nominating an endangered scholar should be in touch with Giorgio DiMauro, Associate Provost for International Initiatives and Special Projects, at email@example.com.
