A Jolly Good Fellow

Dana S. Dunn, associate professor of psychology, has been named a fellow of the American Psychological Association. He is the only APA fellow at Moravian and one of a handful in the Lehigh Valley.

Fellow status, Dunn explained, is a recognition of professional achievement conferred by the APA, an 89,000-member national organization for psychology professionals. About 5 percent of its members are fellows.

Fellowship is reached after a sustained period of work that includes publishing, conferences, teaching, research, supervision of student projects, and other professional activities.

When Dunn was selected, there was “no puff of white smoke over the Vatican,” he joked, “but a pleasing outcome nonetheless.”

Dunn has been a presenter at several recent professional conferences, including the seventh annual New England Conference for Teachers of Psychology, Oct. 19-21 at Western Connecticut State University, and the American Psychological Society in Toronto in June.

In New England, he and colleague Bernard Beins of Ithaca College spoke about collaborative activities for students in statistics and research methods courses, many of which emphasize writing.

Dunn has taught at Moravian since 1987 and chaired the psychology department from 1995 to 2001. His degrees are from Carnegie-Mellon University and the University of Virginia.
