Barry University is a Catholic, coeducational institution with a history of distinction. Founded in 1940, the university is sponsored by the Dominican Sisters of Adrian, Michigan. This dynamic religious order emphasizes study, contemplation, preaching, and community; these pillars of their religious life have led them to a vibrant spirituality, vigorous academic pursuits, and a strong commitment to make the world a more just place. Open to the faith perspectives of all, our Catholic, Dominican foundation calls us to create an educational environment that is caring, that recognizes each person's gifts, and that incorporates the religious dimension and community service into daily life. This perspective will add insight and depth to your undergraduate or graduate education.
A Barry education is an educational experience grounded in purpose-a wonderful thing to find in what is often a scattered world. Our goal is to help you fulfill your potential and dreams. We see every career as a vocation, enabling you to become the person you were meant to be, improving your life and that of others.
