The John V. Roach Honors College has a new academic advisor, Jason Dunn.
Jason graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing in 2007. He received a Master of Business Administration in 2010 and a Doctorate in Educational Leadership in 2015, both from TCU. After growing up in North Texas, Jason considers the area home and said it was a natural fit to end up at TCU.
Jason comes from an eclectic collection of career fields including home building, HVAC, oil recovery, and railroad transportation. He also has taught third, fifth, and seventh grade.
In 2014, he transitioned to higher education where he worked in the recruiting and admissions side of the evening graduate programs at the Neeley School of Business at TCU. He has finally made his way to the John V. Roach Honors College as an academic advisor.
“Academic advising appeals to me because each student brings their own unique set of circumstances,” he said, “which makes exploring the seemingly endless buffet of collegiate opportunities and maintaining the path to graduation an exciting challenge.”
Jason looks forward to watching students gain a better understanding of themselves, their interests, and the world around them as their passions and talents begin intersecting.
“My time in college changed me in ways I never anticipated and I would like to provide support for others to have that kind of experience as well,” Jason said. “I want to share my story, provide guidance, and ask thought provoking questions that challenge students.”
On the personal side, during his time at A&M Jason met his best friend and wife, Paige, who now works in downtown Fort Worth as a CPA. Together they enjoy leading their church small group, taking trips, spending time with family and friends, and going to movies.
