"We have had interns from most of the [New York] Cityʼs major universities and law schools; Bard/BGIA students are the best. They are motivated, well-informed and focused. Even though still undergrads, they have proven to be resourceful human rights researchers and dependable members of our staff. We even hired one as a full-time staffer and would hire more, funds permitting. BGIAʼs program content and our legal services to asylum-seekers dovetail nicely, giving students a solid academic background in world politics against the actual experiences of arriving refugees."

“Over the last eight years, I have had the great pleasure of working with Bard Seniors who have worked part-time at my company. Bard students stand out for their creativity, positive attitude, and problem solving skills. It seems that students who are attending Bard have interesting backgrounds and work experience which enables them to look at the big picture when approaching new situations. I feel very fortunate to be able to turn to Bard College as a resource for students who are looking for work in their Senior year of study, and will continue to employ Bard College Seniors in the future. The students are sophisticated, speak well and are technically skilled. This is [the] perfect combination for what I need in my marketing company.”
