Alumni Stuart Bascomb, who earned his master's degree in accounting in 1968, and his wife, Phyllis, recently donated to the Trulaske School of Business to help create the School of Accountancy Faculty Excellence Fund. The fund is designed to provide net new salary support for a school faculty member.
“Faculty are at the heart of the academic mission,” said Vairam Arunachalam, director of the School of Accountancy. “Stuart's gift has been a great beginning for alumni to join in and support the effort to enhance faculty research, teaching and service. His gift will open up new possibilities."
Bascomb has served on the Trulaske Dean’s Advisory Board since 2005, as well as the MU Capital Campaign Steering Committee. His list of career accomplishments includes serving as the CFO/EVP of sales at Express Scripts from 1989 to 2004 and the chairman/CEO of Qualsight from 2004 to 2012.
