Alumnae Association of Barnard College (AABC)

A community of alumnae 35,000 strong

What is the AABC?

The Alumnae Association of Barnard College (AABC) is comprised of all graduates of the College and former students who have completed at least one year of undergraduate study and who have left Barnard in good standing. The AABC is an independent 501(c)(3) that works in partnership with the Alumnae Relations office of Barnard College.

What is the purpose of the AABC?

AABC Mission:
The purpose of the Alumnae Association shall be to further the interests of Barnard College and to promote a spirit of fellowship among its alumnae.

AABC Vision:
Each alumna will feel a connection to the College and a significant number of alumnae will want to serve the College by supporting its fundraising efforts, advocating for Barnard, and/or participating in the programs of the Alumnae Association of the College.

How does the AABC operate?

Headed by a rotating board of directors, chosen by election, the Alumnae Association works in conjunction with Barnard's Office of Alumnae Relations to support initiatives and develop programs designed to connect alumnae with each other and to the College.

Within the AABC, alumnae participate in class and regional groups in the United States and abroad, as well as in career, young alumnae, and other shared interest groups.
