Brasfield joined Webster University in 1976 as an assistant professor in the History-Political Science Department with teaching obligations in the graduate program. In addition to teaching courses in management and health services management, he has also taught courses in political science. From 1978 to 2014, he served as the program director for the Master’s of Health Administration. Read more about his career at the Walker School blog.

In reflecting on his career, Brasfield said he feels fortunate to have had the opportunity to work at Webster. “I have truly enjoyed teaching because it has allowed me to share my interests with students and help them understand the world of politics and management,” he said. “I also appreciate the friendships I’ve made while working with faculty and staff across disciplines. Together, we have been able to make a positive impact on the university.”

After retiring, Brasfield plans to travel with his wife, Judy, spend time with his daughter and four grandchildren, and cheer on the St. Louis Cardinals.
