Barnard College Will Admit Transgender Women In 2016

In a groundbreaking decision, Barnard College, the all-female Columbia University affiliate, has voted to admit transgender women for the class of 2016.

Barnard joins Wellesley and Smith College in the shift to accepting transgender women as students.

This decision came during a week when transgender rights have had a particularly close spotlight in the media stemming from Caitlyn Jenner’s debut in Vanity Fair.
