Dr. David Valentine Memorial Fund

The Dr. David Valentine Memorial Fund was established honoring a Truman School long-time faculty member. Memorial funds will support students and programs within Truman School’s Institute of Public Policy.

David Valentine, retired faculty member and associate director of the Truman School’s Institute of Public Policy, passed away at his home on May 22, 2014, after a long battle with cancer.

Despite the gravity of his illness, he continued to work on issues important to Missouri’s governance. His knowledge of Missouri government and dedication to improving the state was unmatched.

Prior to joining the Truman School of Public Affairs at the University of Missouri, Dr. Valentine served the Missouri State Senate as director of the Division of Research, taught at the University of Arkansas and Saint Louis University and served in the United States Marine Corp.
