Welcome to the Office of Access & Equity Programs

"Strive to Thrive"

The philosophy of the Office of Access & Equity Programs remains consistent with the College's desire for diversity to be part of the learning experience of all students from a wide variety of backgrounds. Our office recognizes that students with identities historically under-represented in higher education seek to attain a rigorous liberal arts education and often need support to realize this aim. Such students bring to the College a wealth of knowledge and insight not necessarily gained in the classroom. Our scholars benefit from the Bard experience, just as Bard benefits from their presence.  The Office of Access & Equity Programs works closely with HEOP, BOP, ECO, and Posse Scholars (from Atlanta and New Orleans) on campus.  To learn more about Posse, visit
