Barry University is a Catholic institution of higher education founded in 1940 by the Adrian Dominican Sisters. Grounded in the liberal arts tradition, Barry University is a scholarly community committed to the highest academic standards in undergraduate, graduate and professional education. In the Catholic intellectual tradition, integration of study, reflection and action inform the intellectual life. Faithful to this tradition, a Barry education and university experience foster individual and communal transformation where learning leads to knowledge and truth, reflection leads to informed action, and a commitment to social justice leads to collaborative service. Barry University provides opportunities for affirming our Catholic identity, Dominican heritage, and collegiate traditions. Catholic beliefs and values are enriched by ecumenical and interfaith dialog. Through worship and ritual, we celebrate our religious identity while remaining a University community where all are welcome.

Beginnings Initially, Barry was a women's Catholic college. The construction of what was then the Barry College for Women began in 1940, in what had previously been "a tract of tropical vegetation." The empty lot was soon transformed into the main campus, in Miami Shores, FL. The original campus consisted of five buildings. The college was named for Mother Mary Gerald Barry. She served as president from 1940-1961. Barry College became Barry University on November 13, 1981. Presidents The university has had six Adrian Dominican Sisters serve as president since its inception: Mother M. Gerald Barry, 1940-1961; Mother M. Genevieve Weber, 1962�1963; Sister M. Dorothy Browne, 1963�1974; Sister M. Trinita Flood, 1974�1981; Sister Jeanne O'Laughlin, 1981�2004; and Sister Linda Bevilacqua, OP, PhD, 2004�present. The mother house of the sisters is in Adrian, Michigan. Cor Jesu Chapel Cor Jesu Chapel The Cor Jesu ("Heart of Jesus") Chapel is intended to be the spiritual and physical heart of the campus. It was financed with the aid of Margaret Brady Farrell, a parishioner of St. Patrick's Church in Miami Beach. Soon after discovering that the construction of the Cor Jesu was postponed[when?] due to insufficient funds, Farrel donated all the funds needed for completion the chapel's construction. In her honor, the Division of Business and Finance building was dedicated as "Farrell House." The chapel is topped by an 80-foot (24 m) tower holding carillon chimes. It seats 500 persons. Traces of Romanesque architecture can be seen in the inside of the chapel which "was built in choir style with wood wainscoting and a canopy over the altar."A stained glass window of amber color, containing the image of a Celtic cross, is visible from the main entrance of the campus.
