For 125 years, Barnard College has been a place where extraordinary women have gathered the power and promise to take on the world. As part of our anniversary celebration, Barnard is proud to present five exceptional academic leaders who are "raising the bar" on women's scholarship and education. These distinguished professors will share the latest in science, art, politics, anthropology, and psychology, bringing the classroom experience to our neighbors in New York City. Since its founding in 1889, Barnard has been a distinguished leader in higher education, offering a rigorous liberal arts foundation to young women whose curiosity, drive, and exuberance set them apart.
