What would we do without moving carts?

Student Life enhances the educational mission of Barnard College by engaging students outside of the classroom. Our intention is to foster an active community and support students through holistic learning, identity exploration, and leadership development in a dynamic environment.

Student Life holds itself to:

·Provide co-curricular experiences that are vital to a liberal arts education.
·Create spaces for students to explore multiple and intersecting identities.
·Develop leadership and life skills through student employment, programs, retreats, workshops, and committees that are focused on holistic student development.
·Foster relationships and sense of community across campus.
·Support students by advising the Student Leadership Collective, student clubs and organizations, and providing individual student consultations.
·Provide support and referrals to address students’ needs and concerns.
·Welcome feedback, suggestions, and new ideas.

Student Life expects students to:

·Actively participate in programs offered by Student Life, as well as SGA, GBB, McAC, student clubs and organizations, and other campus initiatives.
·Be respectful of people’s identities, experiences, and perspectives.
·Utilize campus resources and seek support from Student Life as student leaders and when planning programs and events.
·Be open to new perspectives and experiences. Challenge one’s self to stretch, learn, and grow.
·Reflect on experiences and bring new ideas and suggestions to Student Life staff.                                                                                                 ·Be familiar with and follow Barnard College, Student Life, and Student Government policies and procedures.
