Mankato, Minn. — Minnesota State University, Mankato President Richard Davenport today expressed his condolences to the campus community upon the death of Carol Stallkamp, who retired in January after more than 34 years of employment at Minnesota State Mankato. Stallkamp died on Tuesday, Oct. 15.

“It is with great sadness that I share with you that my dear colleague Carol Stallkamp passed away on Tuesday, Oct. 15,” Davenport wrote in a message to faculty and staff. “Carol was an exemplary public servant and colleague who always held herself and her co-workers to extremely high standards. She was as patient as she was assertive, and she always acted in the best interests of our faculty, staff and students.

“On behalf of the University community, I extend heartfelt sympathy to Carol's family, friends and colleagues.”

Stallkamp began her work at Minnesota State Mankato in 1978 as a student loan clerk typist. She later held the positions of cashier, loan assistant, contract assistant/office manager, and for her last 11 years, assistant to the president.

She was given emerita status upon retiring, and just prior to retiring on Jan. 4, Stallkamp was honored by the YWCA of Mankato with a SHERO (She Helps Everyone Realize Opportunities) award. The award recognizes women who make a significant, positive impact on the community. Carol was nominated for the award by the Minnesota State Mankato President’s Commission on the Status of Women.

Stallkamp also received the Outstanding Service Award for the President’s Division in 2009-10.

There will be a memorial service at 11 a.m. in the chapel. In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to the Minnesota State University, Mankato Foundation.
