Daniel M. Dunn, Ph.D.

Professor of Communication


Dunn’s current role as a Professor of Communication is to teach a variety of courses for the Department of Communication & Creative Arts, both undergraduate and graduate.

I run every day, work out with a personal trainer, and I am an extremely nutty eater.
