Barnard Chooses a Leader Whose Research Focuses on Women

The New York Times:

Barnard College announced on Monday that it had hired Sian Beilock to be its next president, the eighth person to hold the position.

Ms. Beilock comes from the University of Chicago, where she is executive vice provost overseeing a range of functions and projects, including the University of Chicago Press, the school’s engagement with its surrounding community and several significant building projects.

A cognitive scientist by training, Dr. Beilock studies how people crumble or do well under pressure, and what psychological tools help them perform at their best. She has a particular focus on how women and girls perform in math and science.

She will start at Barnard, the women’s college in Manhattan that is part of Columbia University, on July 1.
