"Betty's academic background, continuing record of scholarship, and administrative experience make her well-suited to serve in this capacity," said University President Jesse W. Rogers. "We are pleased that she will be returning to campus."

Stewart earned her Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry from Mississippi State and her Ph.D. in Protein Biochemistry, Biological Sciences from Carnegie-Mellon University.

Before her first tenure at MSU, Stewart taught chemistry at Austin College in Sherman, Texas, and served as the chair of the department from 2000 to 2006.
