At Barnard, preparing our graduates to flourish in different and often challenging cultural surroundings is a vital part of our mission. Several offices across the campus collaborate on enhancing and expanding the College's global curriculum, outreach, partnerships and opportunities. The Office of International and Intercultural Student Programs (OIIS), works primarily with Barnard students to help them become active leaders and conscientious members of our increasingly global society. Barnard faculty members can also work strategically with the Dean of International Programs and Global Initiatives housed in the Provost's office, developing the connections, courses, and expertise that shape the College’s international focus and character.
Today, with students, programs, partners, research collaborations and alumnae around the world, Barnard College's global footprint reaches over 65 countries. The initiative includes a set of global programs including symposiums, study-abroad, and exchange programs.
