The university community and area leaders welcomed Dr. Betty Stewart to campus March 9, 2017 with an evening reception on the rooftop terrace of Founders Hall. Dr. Stewart joined UNT Dallas in February as the provost and vice president of academic affairs.

The reception included remarks from President Bob Mong, and Dr. Monica Williams. Students in attendance enjoyed meeting the newest member of the university’s administration, and appreciated the provost’s willingness to speak with each student individually. One young woman was fascinated by Dr. Stewart’s background in biochemistry, and left saying she felt encouraged to continue her own pursuit to work in science or healthcare.
