Dunn comes to St. Mary’s College from Columbia University, where he served as director of investigations/deputy Title IX coordinator in the Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action. Prior to his role as director of investigations, Dunn was assistant dean/director of community outreach in the Center for Student Advising at Columbia.
Dean of Students Leonard Brown, who chaired the search committee, said, “Michael stood out from the candidate pool because of his clear understanding of the complexity of Title IX compliance, his ability to relate well to students, and his ability to work effectively across multiple constituencies on campus. He brings great experience working with Title IX and other equity issues in higher education. Michael will be a great addition and asset to our community.”
As director of Title IX compliance and training, Dunn will report to President Tuajuanda Jordan. He will join St. Mary’s College in July.
