Stuart C. Burden, ’84

Stuart is a wonderfully inclusive leader who has given his time and talents to scores of university efforts and initiatives. A stalwart volunteer for the class of ’84, Stuart also served on the SAA’s Board of Directors for nine years -- including two as chair. Exceptionally dedicated and disarmingly modest, Stuart approaches his service with warmth, integrity, initiative, and a generous spirit.
