Our annual Careers in Sport Symposium is slowly — yet surely — approaching (Saturday, October 12th). Leading up to the big show, we will highlight a few of our alumni/panelists so you can learn more about their respective, wide-ranging experiences. Today, get to know Andy Dunn.
Where you’re from:
Major/minor(s) at IC:
Major: Sport Management / Minor: Legal Studies
Best IC memories:
Cortaca Jug games, the Sunday Waffle Bar at Campus Center, Towers Late Night, relaxing on the lower quad on the first warm days of spring.
Current professional position/title:
Assistant Athletic Director for Varsity Sports Administration (Yale University)
Most valuable skill/trait:
I think the skills that have helped the most in getting me where I am today are my people skills and my ability to be adaptable. The world of sports is an ever-changing landscape, and you need to be able to build relationships and be flexible in order to keep pace.
Best piece of personal advice to fellow IC students:
There is no such thing as bad work experience. At the very worst, you will find out what you don’t want to do in life.
