Welcome back to The Ear, The Eye’s podcast dedicated to documenting, detailing, and excavating Columbia’s history!

Our new season kicks off with a story about the historical relationship between Bard College and Columbia. The Hudson Valley college’s historical association with the University was one site of undergraduate coeducational debate decades before Columbia College opened its doors to women. This episode explores the legacy of that affiliation, tracing it through the Barnard-Columbia negotiations that preceded coeducation at Columbia College.
