Dinah E. Gore Kitchen Pantry Dedicated to Dunn

The Dinah E. Gore Teaching and Research Kitchens pantry now bears the name of Dr. Carolyn Dunn, William Neal Reynolds Distinguished Professor and former head of the Department of Agricultural and Human Science. The naming honors the service and dedication of Dunn, one of the major drivers behind the vision for boosting the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences’ work in foods and nutrition by creating a state-of-the-art teaching and research kitchen complex to serve as a hub for observational research studies, training workshops, educational video shoots and more.
