Dr. Tracy Harrell Dunn is an Associate Professor of Business and Interim Dean in the Benedict College Tyrone Adam Burroughs School of Business and Economics. She has been a member of the Benedict faculty since 2003.
Dunn earned both a PhD and an MBA from the University of South Carolina Darla Moore School of Business. She also holds a Master of Science in Journalism from Boston University and a BA in German Studies from Wofford College. Dunn also completed international study at the Goethe Institute, (Rothenberg, Germany), the Manchester School of Business (Manchester, England), and the Moscow International School of Business (Moscow, Russia).
Benedict students benefit greatly from Dunn’s masterful teaching of quantitative methods, principles of finance, and business policy. Through practical applications and case studies that require critical thinking, quantitative, and communication skills, she ensures that her students have multiple opportunities to achieve mastery of the expected learning outcomes. A recent classroom observer documented collaborative activities (experimental and problem-based), online readings and discussions, synthesis assignments, and projects that engaged and motivated students to take an active role in their learning.
Dunn also excels in research and service outside the classroom. She has co-authored, edited, and participated in the awarding of over $10 million in grants to the College and has been an active member in over 25 college and school committees over the last 5 years. During the academic year of 2016-2017, she became the first female Chief Marshal in the 147-year history of Benedict College.
