Read about the 2015 Program

The 2015 program took place at Bard College, January 18–23.

Bard Works

Bard Works prepares students for entering the work force after Bard.


The Bard Works program helps rising juniors and seniors apply their liberal arts education to the work force they are about to enter. Drawing on our vast alumni and parent network, Bard Works pairs participants with a mentor in a field of their interest, helps create and expand a professional network, and develops interview, resume, job hunting, and networking skills. Ultimately, it aims to create a community of leaders who will succeed professionally, and make a difference in the lives of others.

There is a week-long session held on the Bard campus in January, and a weekend session of panels in November conducted in DC.

Bard Works is made possible by a generous grant from an anonymous donor and is a collaboration between the Bard Center for Civic Engagement, the Bard Career Development Office, the Dean of Student Affairs Office, the Office of Development & Alumni/ae Affairs, and the Bard College Alumni/ae Association Board of Governors.
