Ronnie Dunn

Racial Profiling: The Content of Their Character or the Color of Their Skin?

Dr. Ronnie A. Dunn is the Director of Institutional Diversity and associate professor of Urban Studies at Cleveland State University. His research interests include issues affecting minorities and the urban poor with a particular focus on race, crime, and the criminal justice system. He was appointed by Governor John Kasich to the Ohio Collaborative Community-Police Advisory Board, which has established statewide policing standards on use-of-force, recruitment and hiring, community policing, and bias-free policing, and he provided written testimony to President Barack Obama’s Taskforce on 21st Century Policing. His most recent book, Boycotts, Busing, & Beyond: The History & Implications of School Desegregation in the Urban North, (Kendall-Hunt Publishing, 2016) uses the Cleveland School Desegregation Case to examine the issue.

Dr. Dunn chairs the Cleveland NAACP’s Criminal Justice Committee and is the past chair of the Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority’s Board of Commissioners on which he served for seven years. He is a native Clevelander, and U.S. Air Force veteran, and a frequent commentator in local, national, and international media outlets.

Martin Luther King Day Community Celebration with speaker Ronnie Dunn will be held in the Chapel at 7 p.m on January 21, 2019.
