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 adviser to any and all students interested in pursuing a competitive fellowship or scholarship.  I serve as the liaison to the Barnard chapter of Phi Beta Kappa and the Committee on Honors which interviews students applying for external fellowships (Rhodes, British Marshall, Fulbright), and considers students for internal Barnard awards, prizes, and fellowships. 

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!
