Deputy Provost (Academic Operations and Inclusion): Dr. Teri Shearer


In her role as deputy provost (academic operations and inclusion), Dr. Teri Shearer works closely with Queen’s senior management team to advance the academic, operational, and equity goals of the university. Among her responsibilities, Dr. Shearer plays a leadership role in overseeing academic appointments, chairing the Senate Committee on Academic Development, overseeing the university’s response to the Principal’s Implementation Committee on Racism, Diversity, and Inclusion (PICRDI) report, and advancing equity, diversity, and inclusion initiatives on campus.

Dr. Shearer joined Queen’s University in 1996 upon completion of her PhD at the University of Iowa. Her research focuses on the social and behavioural consequences of accounting practices, and her papers have appeared in some of the top journals in this field. Prior to her appointment as Deputy Provost in January 2016, Dr. Shearer served as Associate Dean of Faculty and Associate Professor at Queen’s Smith School of Business. 

Dr. Shearer is available to meet with students, staff, and faculty to discuss matters of inclusivity on campus, and is interested in hearing about the experiences of Queen’s community members from diverse backgrounds.
