CED Welcomes Julianne Dunn as Newest Faculty Member
Julianne Dunn has joined Extension’s Community and Economic Development (CED) team as an Instructor-Economic Development.
Initially, Dunn will be working on a new pilot project focusing on rural retail workforce development. In this capacity, she will be soliciting one 2-5 county region in Arkansas to participate in this exciting new project.
"I am honored to support CED's efforts to strengthen retail, hospitality, and tourism industries. This program combines my interests in business and education and provides me an opportunity to help Arkansas continue to grow," Dunn said.
Dunn most recently worked as an operations consultant assisting business startups in the Washington, D.C. area. She is returning to Arkansas where she previously worked as Assistant Director of Field Service at the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service to engage community partners and help students identify and implement successful field projects.
She has a master's degree in public service from the Clinton School, a master’s in public health from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and a bachelor's in political science from the University of Missouri. She has lived in several countries and worked two years as a Peace Corps volunteer in Ukraine, where she taught English as a Second Language and American culture to middle and high school students.
With only three days on the job, Dunn has already demonstrated tremendous energy, focus, and creativity. We are thrilled to have her on our team. She can be contacted at 501-671-2003 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
