Stull went from playing football at Duke University to professor of health administration.

During his career, Stull would be credited with expanding the educational program and design planning at the University of California and strengthening the American College of Healthcare Administrators, now known as the American College of Healthcare Executives.

At the University of California at Berkley, Stull initiated a graduate program in hospital administration, the first of its kinds west of the Mississippi.

For a brief period in the 1960s, Stull worked for Booz Allen & Hamilton as director of its health and medical administration division. During that period, he designed a 25-year master plan for Duke. But it was his time at the ACHA that was most notable. When he took over in 1965, the group was $103,000 in debt. He would stay on until 1978, and during that time, “the college grew into a true professional organization under Dick’s leadership,” a former hospital CEO once said.

Also, from 1965 to 1969, Stull served on the White House Council on Aging, Nutrition and Health.
