Dr. Donald H.  Stuhlman is the Academic Director of Finance & Accounting and Chair of Economics at Wilmington University.  Don came to Dover in the Spring of 1983 in the final assignment of his 20-year career in the United States Air Force, a career that found him living in eight states, South Korea and Saudi Arabia with experience in such varied fields as personnel, finance, disaster preparedness and five memorable years as an ICBM Launch Control Officer in the Strategic Air Command (SAC).  Retiring from the Air Force in 1990, he moved into positions in corporate industry and later in the non-profit environment where he was the head of finance, responsible for capital budgeting, operational efficiencies and a multi-million-dollar investment portfolio.


Don had started teaching as an adjunct faculty member for Wilmington in the fall of 1988 when the call came offering him a full-time faculty position in 1999.  Don has taught extensively in Wilmington’s College of Business from undergrads to doctoral students, primarily in finance, economics, strategic management, and one – in his terms - “unforgettable” course in statistics.  Don served as President of the University’s Faculty Senate for three consecutive terms.


His bachelor’s degree is from Southern Connecticut State College where he majored in English with a minor in American History, his MBA – with emphasis in finance and economics - is from the University of Montana, and his DBA is from Wilmington.


Don, an unabashed Yankee and NASCAR fan, resides in Dover with his wife of 50+ years, Kathy.  They have two children, two grandchildren and two cats.
