Texas Woman's U. chancellor Ann Stuart gets 3-year extension

Fort Worth Star-Telegram
June 6, 2010
Chancellor Ann Stuart will serve three more years at the helm of Texas Woman's University.

"It's wonderful," Stuart said. "2011 is a big year for us."

The board of regents voted 8-0 Friday to extend Stuart's contract during a meeting at the Parkland Campus in Dallas.

Stuart's contract had one year remaining. The new contract runs through 2013. She asked the board not to consider a salary increase. Her salary remains $430,000. Under her contract, she also gets a leased car and lives in a university-owned house.

Stuart, first hired by the university in December 1999, said 2011 will be an exciting year with the opening of a science complex in Denton and the T. Boone Pickens Institute of Health Sciences in Dallas.

Her contract extension comes months after the faculty senate adopted a resolution of no confidence in the chancellor.

Since then, Stuart said, she has been working and communicating with faculty senate members to address concerns that included low morale and budget plans.

The upcoming year will also pose fiscal challenges as universities continue to prepare for state cuts, she said.

"During the last five sessions, the Legislature has always been there," Stuart said. "The problem is the state has less money."

This year, Gov. Rick Perry, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst and House Speaker Joe Straus asked state agencies, including colleges and universities, to submit spending plans that included a 5 percent cut in state dollars for fiscal 2010 and 2011.
