An integrated approach to education

Founded in 1940 by the Adrian Dominican Sisters and originally called Barry College for Women, Barry is now a coeducational university that remains faithful to its Catholic intellectual tradition.

We know that reflection and action play a big role in intellectual life. Additionally, education fosters individual and communal transformation. That’s why we stress the importance of taking informed action and making a commitment to social justice.
