Debora L. Spar, also known as DSpar, succeeded Judith Shapiro as the tenth and current President of Barnard College in 2008. She was formerly a professor at Harvard Business School, and has no past ties to Barnard.

She favors quantitative stuff, fittingly enough. She wants more preprofessional studies at Barnard, and wrote "the time has come for even the most elite undergraduate institutions to integrate economic concerns more explicitly into the college experience" in WaPo[1].

In response to Obamanard, she dismissed Bwog comments as "19-year-olds writing at 4:30 in the morning" [2].

She is the author of a forthcoming book, Wonder Women: Sex, Power, and the Quest for Perfection.
