The transformation of a 40-acre tract of tropical vegetation into Barry’s college campus happened through the original conceptualization of the most Reverend Patrick Barry, the Bishop of St. Augustine and the Reverend Mother M. Gerold Barry, Prioress General of the Dominican Sisters of Adrian, Michigan. Barry University opened its doors in 1940 and got its present name on November 1981. This institution has had six Adrian Dominican Sisters serving as president from the time of its inception to the present. The college curriculum is grounded on liberal arts tradition offering only the highest academic standards for its undergraduate, graduate and professional education.
