Barnard College is a women’s liberal arts college and a member of the Seven Sisters.  Founded in 1889, Barnard has been affiliated with Columbia University since 1902. While the college is legally and financially a separate institution, there is a high degree of academic integration within the University, with Columbia classes open to Barnard students and vice versa. Barnard students and faculty are represented in the University Senate and student clubs are open to all students. Barnard degrees are awarded by Columbia University and all Barnard faculty are granted tenure by the college and Columbia. Although Barnard students participate in the academic, social, athletic and extracurricular life of the broader University community, Barnard is responsible for its own separate admissions, health, security, guidance and placement services, and has its own alumnae association.
