On the heels of Ani Bournoutian’s resignation as Barnard’s dean of international and transfer students, Barnard Dean Avis Hinkson, BC ’84, announced Monday that the administration has reorganized three of its offices concerning international students.
Barnard students will soon be logging out of eBear permanently and instead signing in to myBarnard, which administrators believe is a more user-friendly web portal.
Administrators collaborated with the office of Admissions and Study Abroad, instituting new policies that mandate students planning to study abroad to confirm decisions earlier and withdraw housing requests. The policies also altered the housing cancellation fee to incentivize earlier room cancellation.
Leymah Gbowee, a Liberian peace activist and 2011 winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, told Barnard graduates to stand up for themselves and be proud of what they can do to help the world.

Nine students joined Barnard President Debora Spar around the table in her office late Thursday afternoon. But instead of hashing out policy or discussing Barnard’s finances, they laughed and chatted about the characters and themes of a novel.
Quinn, who would be the first woman and first openly-gay mayor if elected, is seen by many as the frontrunner to replace Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
