Junior Class Dean Evelyn Leong

As an Associate Dean of Studies, I provide academic advising and general support to the junior class and serve as the dean for academic assistance.  Our Peer Learning Program provides free peer tutoring to all Barnard students in certain subjects such as chemistry, economics, math, and languages.  This program trains and supports peer tutors and the needs of their tutees.  

About Me

I have been an Associate Dean of Studies at Barnard since fall 2017.  Prior to joining the College, I served as an Associate Dean of Studies at Sarah Lawrence College for ten years where I also was a guest lecturer in Global Studies and Women's History.  I earned a bachelor's degree in Communications from Pace University and two master's degrees, one from Sarah Lawrence College in Women's History and a second from the Bard Graduate Center in Design History.  I am a proud native New Yorker, raised in Chinatown by immigrant parents, and live just outside NYC with my husband.  I have two grown children who live too far away at the moment.

In my spare time, I like to enjoy the company of friends, visit art museums, attend dance performances, read all types of literature, knit sweaters, and bake old and new recipes.  I look forward to working with you!
