Student Health & Counseling Services
Counseling Services and Health Services
attend to individual student needs by providing private, confidential assistance, while Bard's Response to Rape and Associated Violence Education Program (BRAVE) provides peer counseling and educational programs for the community.
Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism are not only studied but also practiced at Bard. Clergy members offer study on a formal and informal basis, develop programming for the campus at large, and support student organizations. Weekly worship in different traditions, and services and celebrations for holy days, are held throughout the year. Visit the Bard Chaplaincy
for more information.
The Learning Commons
Help in writing a paper—or with any academic subject—is found at the Learning Commons. Commons staff provides tutoring and academic skills workshops to all Bard students, with assistance in more than 40 subjects. The commons offers a credit-bearing course in writing, as well as one-on-one tutorials.
The CDO offers career counseling, helps students find internships and jobs, and coaches them through the application process. Informal talks, career-specific panels, and formal symposia take place throughout the academic year, connecting students with various professions, alumni/ae, and employers.
Bard computing resources and facilities are available to all faculty, staff, and students on campus. Although many students provide their own computer, it is not required. Computers are available in computing labs and classrooms throughout campus. Wireless networking is available in the campus center, libraries, and many residence halls.
