Chapter Welcomes First Civilian Chancellor of U.S. Air Force School

In December, the chapter welcomed Dr. Todd Stewart as its luncheon speaker. Stewart serves as the Air Force Institute of Technology’s director and chancellor. He is also a retired major general, United States Air Force. Stewart served for 34 years with the Air Force. His military career included numerous command and staff assignments in positions responsible for combat engineering and installation management, including infrastructure construction, operation and maintenance, energy management, environmental protection and military family housing management at Air Force bases in the United States and around the world. While on active duty, he also served as an associate professor of management at the Air Force Institute of Technology. In his final assignment, Stewart was responsible for developing and implementing long-range plans and programs related to Air Force organizations responsible for systems acquisition, research and development, test and evaluation, depot-level maintenance, supply and transportation. He retired from active service in April 2002. Following his retirement from active service, Stewart held appointments at The Ohio State University (six years) and Michigan Technological University (three years). At both institutions, he led university-wide initiatives to encourage, support and facilitate research and teaching related to all aspects of national security. This included activities related to (e.g.) defense, intelligence, homeland security, foreign relations and international development. While at Ohio State, he founded and served as executive director of the National Academic Consortium for Homeland Security, an alliance of more than 365 colleges and universities. Stewart was also appointed as an adjunct assistant professor of national security affairs at the John Glenn School of Public Affairs, The Ohio State University. In 2006, President George W. Bush appointed Stewart (with U.S. Senate confirmation) to serve as a member of the National Security Education Board. This board oversees the National Security Education Program, a major federal initiative, established in law and designed to build a larger pool of U.S. citizens with enhanced foreign language skills and a better understanding of the culture, history, economics, politics and government of other countries. In 2011, the secretary of the Air Force appointed Stewart to a four-year term on the Air Force Scientific Advisory Board. He has also served as a consultant to federal government agencies, the state of Ohio, and private-sector organizations, on a variety of national-security and other issues.
