BIOGRAPHY

Green began his career at IU Kokomo in 1972 as assistant professor of Fine Arts. He then served in a variety of leadership roles, including chairperson for the Department of Humanities, dean of the School of Arts and Sciences, vice chancellor of Academic Affairs -- and during the 10 years as vice chancellor he served as acting dean for three areas on campus; nursing, public and environmental affairs, and the library.

During his tenure, Green helped develop the campus' current mission statement and strategic plan, helped strengthen IU Kokomo's relationship with Ivy Tech and with Purdue College of Technology Kokomo, and reorganized the Chancellor's Advisory Board. He supported the campus' participation in the American Democracy Project, helped develop the North Central Indiana Regional Leadership Institute, and was involved in construction of a new nursing clinical simulation center. One of his most impressive achievements was his deep involvement in developing degree programs, not only in his area of expertise, but across the campus. During his tenure as vice and interim chancellor, fourteen new academic programs were developed in the arts and sciences, business, public administration, education, health sciences, entrepreneurship studies, homeland security, and informatics. In addition to his work in higher education, Green has a long history of serving the citizens of north central Indiana through community organizations.

In 2010, after 38 years of service to IU Kokomo and the community, Stuart Green retired from his position as interim Chancellor.
