Chancellor Ann Stuart, Ph.D.
Ann Stuart was named chancellor and president of Texas Woman’s University in 1999. Under her leadership enrollment has grown by 85 percent, TWU has produced more than 20,000 graduates in critical fields and the university has received national recognition for its quality, value and diversity. Chancellor Stuart has raised more than $220 million for facilities, scholarships and faculty development and led the implementation of advanced technology and teaching tools that mirror the workplace and improve learning.
She led the construction of new facilities that position TWU at the forefront of workplace development. The TWU Institute of Health Sciences-Houston Center, located in the renowned Texas Medical Center, was built at no cost to the state. The TWU T. Boone Pickens Institute of Health Sciences-Dallas Center brings together health care programs previously located at separate sites to one location, enabling TWU to emphasize the team approach to patient care. The Ann Stuart Science Complex in Denton, which doubled the university’s science laboratory and classroom space, is helping meet the state’s need for skilled professionals in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields.
Chancellor Stuart also will leave a lasting legacy to TWU as a private citizen. She has provided funding for scholarships to undergraduate students and for annual events that celebrate the wonders, truths and mysteries of science and bring exceptional alumni back to the university.
