Faculty Support


A Great Education Begins with Great Educators


Help Barnard attract and retain the world’s top scholars by endowing a professorship or faculty research fund.

Barnard’s faculty is the heart of our academic excellence. As a community of highly distinguished scholars, the faculty is fully involved in strengthening the College’s curriculum and keeping it innovative, relevant, and engaging. They maintain a high level of dedication as teachers, take seriously their roles as mentors, and consistently demand rigor and creativity from their students.

Decades after graduation, our alumnae still warmly recount the professors whose words and guidance helped lead them to discover their passions and embark on paths to professional success. Those pivotal conversations happen at Barnard every day, and the faculty continue to imbue our students with drive, enthusiasm, and dedication to their fields.

Faculty support is one of the most important and gratifying ways that donors can sustain Barnard’s academic distinction.
