It’s welcome back for new Dean of Student Affairs

Carleton University is welcoming back an alumna as the new Dean of Student Affairs.

Ann Tierney, who holds a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication and Law from Carleton, will be taking over for Leonard Librande as of November 1, 2004.

Tierney, currently Assistant Dean in the Faculty of Law at Queen’s University, says she is looking forward to her new position.

“I’ve had a great experience at Queen’s, but it’s nice to move on. This is a real opportunity for me to take on new responsibilities,” she says.

Tierney is replacing Librande who served as the Dean of Students for almost seven years. Provost and Vice-President (Academic) Alan Harrison notes Librande has not only defined his position, but has “defined service to students. What (the position) is today is due in large part to his steering hands.”

But the change in title from Dean of Students to Dean of Student Affairs does not reflect a change in the position responsibilities, confirms Harrison. He adds that over the years “the responsibilities have evolved and so the new title is a reflection of that evolution.”

Carole Saab, President of the Carleton University Students’ Association (CUSA) was on the hiring committee for Tierney and says she is looking forward to working with the new dean, “to continue to foster a positive working relationship between students, their representatives and administration.”

“Carleton University is focused on student success with their support services. I am excited to be back here,” says Tierney.
