Student Resources Group
Old Gym, phone: 845.758.7144
The Student Resources Group (SRG) is a student-run organization that offers a variety of services to the Bard community. It organizes job-specific service groups and provides students with an opportunity to take an active role in the safety of our campus community. The SRG offers training opportunities and state certifications to its members free of charge. Because of the nature of many of the service groups, most of the work available to students takes place outside the normal nine-to-five workday. Interested students must attend the information sessions offered at the beginning of each semester in order to pick up an application for employment. All services are offered to Bard students free of charge and can be reached by calling Security at 845-758-7460 or the Safe Ride direct number 845-758-7144.
