The following email was sent to the Barnard community on September 12, 2019:


Dear Barnard Community,

I am writing to let you know that Molree Williams-Lendor, Executive Director for Equity and Title IX Coordinator, will be leaving Barnard on September 20 to serve as the inaugural director for the Office for Workplace Culture and Inclusion at NYU Langone Health. Although we are certainly sad to see her go, this is a great opportunity for Ms. Williams-Lendor, and we know that she will excel in this next step in her career.

While the College searches for a new Executive Director for Equity and Title IX Coordinator, Deputy Dean of the College Alicia Lawrence, who brings broad awareness of current trends and best practices related to Title IX, will serve as the College’s Title IX Coordinator. Madeline Camacho, Associate Director of Community Standards & Investigations, will be responsible for all other equity-based matters. More information on Title IX and Equity can be found on the Title IX and Equity website.

Ms. Williams-Lendor has been a tremendous asset to Barnard since joining the College in 2017. She has been an advocate for the Barnard community, approaching difficult issues with sensitivity and patience. Working collaboratively with faculty and staff, she has increased campus awareness around Title IX and other equity matters. Ms. Williams-Lendor managed and facilitated the growth of the Office of Disability Services into a new space and new identity as the Center for Accessibility Resources and Disability Support. And, as an indication of her important work, the Student Government Association named her their 2019 Administrator of Distinction. We are also grateful to her for her work leading the Barnard Community Safety Group, which will now be chaired by Vice President for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Ariana González Stokas. 

Please join me in congratulating Ms. Williams-Lendor. We thank her for her consummate professionalism and dedication over the past two years and wish her well in this next endeavor.
