Biographical / Historical

The office that assumed responsibility of the business aspect of the University has gone through significant changes over the years. In the 1970s the Business Affairs Officer executed the duties of Financial Officer. In 1980, under the Margaret Preska Presidential Administration, Mankato State University went through an administrative reorganization. As a result, the position of Vice-President of Fiscal Affairs was created. Thomas Stark was the first person to occupy the position. In 2001 the Division of Fiscal Affairs was renamed the Division of Finance and Administration. H. Dean Trauger was the Vice-President at that time. Trauger was also the first person to hold the position under the Finance and Administration name. The current Vice-President of the Finance and Administration is Richard Straka.
