Dunn was initiated into the Society in 2010 at Boise State University.
The Love of Learning program, implemented in 2007, grants 160 awards annually in support of graduate and professional studies, doctoral dissertations, continuing education, career development, and travel related to teaching and studies.
In addition to the Love of Learning program, the Society’s award programs give more than $1 million over a two-year period to qualifying students and members through graduate fellowships, undergraduate study abroad grants, member and chapter awards, and grants for local and national literacy initiatives.
