Welcome to the Dragon Family: Shawn Stumphf

Meet MSUM’s new assistant professor of finance, Shawn Stumphf. He graduated from MSUM in 2008 and is back on campus to teach.


Q: What drew you to MSUM?

A: I went to school at MSUM, and I’ve taught as an adjunct here and there. I’m working on completing my doctorate right now and MSUM has become a natural place for me to be.


Q: What is your favorite part about MSUM?

A: I like the culture; it really feels like a family here. When I went to school you could tell everyone genuinely cared about you and your future. It’s also nice that there’s always someone there to help if I have a question.


Q: How do you prefer to start your workday?

A: I like to start it by reading. Weather it’s current events or a textbook, reading helps me get my brain going.


Q: What would we most likely find you doing on the weekend?

A: Probably working; but if not, I might be reading or at my children’s soccer games.


Q: What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?

A: There aren’t a lot of things people don’t know about me. I guess I don’t talk about my dogs a lot; I have two golden doodles named Stella and Josie. Stella is four and Josie is two.
