A graduate of Brown and Harvard Universities, Dunn has enjoyed an outstanding career as a classroom teacher, coach and senior administrator. He has worked in independent, public, day and boarding schools on the East Coast and in the Midwest. Most recently, he served for seven years as head of The Roeper School, an independent school outside of Detroit. Dunn immigrated to the United States from Jamaica with his mother and siblings when he was 9 years old and grew up in Boston. He attended public school until, with support from A Better Chance, a program that provides educational opportunities to academically talented young people of color, he was able to enroll at the prestigious Milton Academy for high school. As someone whose life was transformed by his educational experiences, Dunn has remained committed to schools. Over the course of his career, he has been an active leader in education both nationwide and in his immediate communities. Currently, he serves on the board of the National Association of Independent Schools. He previously was a co-chair of the National Advisory Board of the Principals’ Center at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. He was selected as a 2010 Fellow in the Klingenstein Program for Visiting Heads of School at Columbia University’s Teachers College. In 2008, he was honored by the organization A Better Chance as one of its 45 Honored Alumni in celebration of the organization’s 45th Anniversary. Since coming to Latin School, Dunn has made deepening the school’s commitment to serving the wider community one of his main objectives. In the fall of 2012, under Dunn’s leadership, the school launched the Uptown Community Partnership. By working with local civic leaders and cultural and community organizations, it is Dunn’s goal for Latin to have a meaningful impact on this neighborhood while also providing students with an in-depth service learning experience. Dunn also has been leading Latin through a strategic planning process and preparing the school for its 125th anniversary and a major endowment effort.
