Vice chancellor announcement
May 31, 2016
Dear university community,
It is my pleasure to announce that Marshall Stewart, director of college leadership and strategy at the North Carolina State University (NCSU) College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, has been named vice chancellor of extension and engagement at MU, effective Aug. 15, 2016.
During the course of his 30-year career in agricultural education and extension services, Dr. Stewart has served in many roles as an educator and leader of education and extension efforts. He understands the importance of the land-grant mission and our obligation to bring our discoveries to the citizens of Missouri as we work to improve the lives of every Missourian.
In addition to his current position at NCSU, Stewart also serves as special assistant to the dean. In these roles, he is responsible for focusing on the development of new and innovative leadership development programs for internal and external stakeholders by developing strategic partnerships and strengthening external relations with college policymakers. Stewart also serves as the director of the Association of Public & Land-Grant Universities’ (APLU) Food Systems Leadership Institute, where he provides executive leadership education for food and agriculture systems leaders in higher education and industry around the nation and the world.
At NCSU, Stewart established new leadership initiatives including the Warren Leadership and Public Policy Program, a year-long program focused on food and agricultural issues for undergraduate students; and a leadership development program for faculty and staff. He also is developing a public leadership development program that would prepare stakeholders for public leadership opportunities. Prior to his position at NCSU, Stewart served as associate director of the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service and department head and program leader of the State 4-H and Family and Consumer Sciences Program at NCSU.
Stewart holds a bachelor of science degree in agricultural education, a master of science degree in agricultural sciences and a doctorate of education degree in agricultural and extension education from NCSU.
Stewart will replace Linda “Jo” Turner, who has been serving as interim vice provost and director of extension since April 2016.
Please join me in welcoming Marshall Stewart to Mizzou.
