Stern served on the OSU faculty of education 35 years and, between 2002 and 2011, served as dean of the College of Education. Since he first learned about the Daly Fund, Stern has been fascinated by the remarkable impact that it’s had and what can be learned from its almost hundred year history. In retirement he has been studying the impact of the Fund and is now writing a book about Bernard Daly, the scholarship, and its impact. You can learn more about Sam’s research on the Daly Fund at his blog: http://blogs.oregonstate.edu/lakeview/.
