As a faculty member in the Harmon College of Business Administration, Kenneth Stone played an important role in educating students who went on to achieve successful careers in accounting and other business areas. The professor emeritus of accounting joined the faculty in 1969, and taught here continuously, with the exception of taking two years to pursue a doctorate.
Stone came to the university after serving previously as an instructor at Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau. He began work at UCM as an assistant professor of accounting and climbed the faculty ranks to become a professor in 1983. He taught undergraduate courses in the School of Accountancy that included Intermediate Accounting II and Principles of Managerial Accounting, in addition to graduate accounting courses such as Advanced Accounting II and Seminar in Accounting Theory. He chaired the Department of Accounting from 2004 to 2007.
In addition to his teaching load, Stone took on a number of assignments outside the classroom that included serving on the Faculty Senate, department and college promotion and tenure committees, departmental search committees, and General Education Committee. He was the faculty sponsor of the Accounting Students Association, and provided advisement to graduate students in his department.
Stone is a University of Missouri-Columbia graduate. His three degrees from MU are the bachelor’s degree in business administration, master’s degree, and doctorate, all in accountancy.
In retirement, Stone plans to teach two courses in the fall 2010 and two in the spring 2011. He’ll have more time for travel, keeping fit by jogging and walking, and pursuing interests in automotive mechanics and home energy production.
