Outgoing University of Calgary vice-provost (students) Ann Tierney will join Queen's University as the school's associate vice-principal and dean of student affairs as of July 1.
Tierney, who has been with the U of C since August 2007, graduated from Queen's with a bachelor of law in 1989 and served as the assistant dean of the faculty of law from 1999-2004, during which time she also received her master of public administration from the school.
"I am delighted to be returning to Queen's where I had a wonderful experience both as a student and during my time working at the Faculty of Law," said Tierney in a press release.
While at the U of C, Tierney established the Student Success Centre and the Centre for Community Engaged Learning.
The U of C is currently searching for Tierney's replacement. The vice-provost (students) is responsible for such services as recruitment, student awards, residence, the U-Pass and the bookstore.
