Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York

Bard College is a private, coeducational liberal arts institution in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, 145 km (90 mi) north of New York City.

The college was originally founded in 1860 under the name St. Stephen's, in association with the Episcopal church of New York City, and changed its name to Bard in 1934 in honor of its founder, John Bard.

The college confers bachelor's and master's degrees in a wide range of fields. It offers courses leading to the bachelor of arts degree in four academic divisions: arts, languages and literature, natural sciences and mathematics, and social studies. A required curriculum of arts and sciences courses, known as the Common Curriculum, is generally completed in the first two years, after which the students concentrate on their chosen major. Seniors must complete a thesis project. The college also operates a tutorial system that allows students to work individually with their professors. Joint degrees in business administration, engineering, forestry, and public administration are offered in cooperation with other colleges and universities, including Columbia University in New York City; Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri; Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire; Duke University in Durham, North Carolina; and Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut.

Master's degrees are offered through the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts; the Graduate School of Environmental Studies; the Center for Curatorial Studies; and the Graduate School for the Study of Decorative Arts in New York City.

Research facilities at the college include the Archaeology Field School, the Center for Curatorial Studies, the Jerome Levy Economics Institute, and the Community, Regional, and Environmental Studies Center.

Clarkson College, Omaha, Nebraska

Clarkson College is a private, coeducational institution in Omaha, Nebraska. The school traces its roots to Omaha's Good Samaritan Hospital, which opened in 1869 and became the forerunner of Bishop Clarkson Memorial Hospital. The first student nurse completed a two-year training period in 1890. Clarkson College confers bachelor's and master's degrees in a variety of health care and business fields. It offers programs of study in nursing, radiography, medical imaging, business, physical therapy, and health services management.
The college is named after Bishop Robert Harper Clarkson (1826-1884). From 1849 to 1865, he was rector of St. James Church, Chicago. In 1865 he was elected missionary bishop of Nebraska and Dakota. He first visited Omaha in December of 1865. In 1868 he was elected the first bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Nebraska.

Students and professionals in the health care field confront issues of life and death on a regular basis. These issues can challenge the strongest of spiritual beliefs. Since students must learn how to care for the whole patient, including the spiritual dimension as well as the physical and psychological, courses at Clarkson College explore such topics as death and dying, religious and cultural differences, and ethics and contemporary moral issues. One of the significant benefits of being a church-related college is the ability to speak openly about spiritual issues and to address this important dimension in caring for the sick and dying.
