Jolly Good Fellow
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
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
