Professor Clete Daniel, professor of labor history and director of Off-Campus Credit Programs, died suddenly in his home on Sunday, April 18. He joined the ILR School in 1973 and he left deep and lasting impressions on his students and colleagues over these past 37 years.

Since 1989, Professor Daniel also served as Director of ILR’s Off-Campus Credit Programs. In that role, he assisted many students in securing credit internships in the U.S. and around the world; he was the driving force behind the school’s program at University College Dublin, a semester abroad program of growing interest to ILR students.

He is remembered for his love of teaching, his wonderful sense of humor, his quiet acts of generosity, and his witty “one liners.” Professor Daniel will be greatly missed by the ILR community.
