Marshall Stewart will depart the University of Missouri for Kansas State University on January 20th.

After six years as Vice Chancellor for Extension and Engagement, Marshall Stewart’s final day at the University of Missouri is Friday.  Stewart has accepted a leadership position at Kansas State University.  He tells Regional Radio why he’s making the move west.

Stewart says he’s leaving with fond memories, as well as with stronger ties developed between the University of Missouri System and the rest of the state.

Stewart became the UM System’s first Chief Engagement Officer in 2018.  He’ll be the first Senior Vice President for External Affairs, University Engagement and Partnerships at K-State, as well as chief of staff to President Richard Linton.  Following Stewart’s departure this weekend, Chad Higgins will become Mizzou’s interim Vice Chancellor for Extension and Engagement.
