The Love of Learning
"The university can be a center for and a model of cultural creation, debate, service, and political exchange among citizens of the future, one that is dominated not by commerce and a narrow definition of utility, but by a love of learning."
— Bard College President Leon Botstein

Spotlight on the Bard College Farm
Bard's organic farm produces more than 20,000 lbs. of produce every year, much of which is served on campus. The farm is one of many sustainability initiatives at Bard. The College is getting closer to its goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2035, through a combination of responsible consumption and production, conservation, green building, and energy efficiency. Bard students with a passion for sustainability can study environmental science and policy at the undergraduate level, or through one of our dual-degree or graduate programs.
