Though Mr. Stumpff has been an academic administrator since 1968, he initially “fell into” the role when a friend offered him a job at Pennsylvania State University as an athletic director. When he spoke about it to his mentor at the University of Maryland, the university offered him a similar position, and he has been working for the university for almost his entire professional career. Mr. Stumpff held numerous roles over his time with the university, and was the author and editor of Maryland Wrestling and Maryland Basketball, as well as assistant editor of the Maryland Football Guide. He was the director of the Maryland student union for many years, and worked as both business manager and director of the athletic programs at the University of Maryland.
A native of Lewistown, Pennsylvania, Mr. Stumpff traveled south to earn a BS from the University of Maryland in 1968, and earned his certifications at the University of Kentucky in 1978. He held the role of assistant director of general services and facilities management with the University of Maryland from 1988 to 2005, along with concurrent roles. Mr. Stumpff has also been active with his civic community as an assistant minister of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, and a member of the Lutheran campus ministry board of the University of Maryland from 1995 to 2006. He was on the church council of Abiding Savior Lutheran Church from 1986 to 1987.
In 2005, Mr. Stumpff was named director of public works for the city of College Park, home to the University of Maryland. He has also been recognized with life membership in the University of Maryland M Club and the University of Maryland Alumni Association. Mr. Stumpff has held a seat on the board of directors of the Maryland Recyclers Coalition since 1997, and became its chairman in 2003. He is a recipient of an Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award, and has appeared in the pages of Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in American Education, Who’s Who in the East, and the 22nd edition of Who’s Who in the World.
