Sloate Media Center


We are Barnard's home for original media content creation and research. Our video production studio, audio recording booth, and post-production computer lab are open to all students, faculty and staff.

As a safe space for all media creators, we stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and the ongoing demands for action against racial injustice in our community and beyond. Black lives matter.
