Inclusion as a Model for Building Resilient Communities: Now on Youtube

Incoming Head of School Kalyan Balaven sat down with James Joyce III, founder of Coffee With a Black Guy and aspiring mayoral candidate to discuss how inclusion fits in to Dunn's mission of educating the whole student to their fullest potential, why it is critical to building strong school communities, and what his vision is for all students at Dunn and in Santa Barbara County.  He also told stories from his own experiences that have greatly influenced his outlook as a Head of School and educator. It was a heartfelt, inspiring conversation, not to be missed.
