Karee Dunn joined the University of Tennessee and the Department of Educational Psychology and Counseling as Assistant Professor in August of 2014. We asked her to reflect on her first semester here. Read her responses below.

What sold you on UTK?
I was drawn to the atmosphere of collegiality and the desire to innovate and improve in all our roles that permeates every level of the university. After leaving the interview, I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else. I kept all my fingers and toes crossed until I heard from Dr. McCallum! As native Tennesseans, my family and I were also really excited to be back in our home state.

What would you tell the next new faculty member who joins EPC?
Take a deep breathe; now, how can I help?

What has been your most memorable experience this semester?
As an SEC football fanatic, I’m going to have to say my first trip to Neyland Stadium was pretty amazing.

What’s your favorite activity outside of work?
I really enjoy playing volleyball.
