Instructional Assistant Professor, Physiology of Reproduction; Associate Head for Academic Programs
Room 133 Kleberg
Dr. Kathrin Dunlap is an Instructional Associate Professor and currently serves as the Associate Department Head for Academic Programs within the Department of Animal Science. She graduated from Oregon State University with a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in Animal Science with an emphasis in Endocrinology. Dr. Dunlap received a doctorate in Physiology of Reproduction from Texas A&M University and conducted postdoctoral studies at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences prior to joining the Department of Animal Science.
Inclusivity within the discipline of animal science is a priority within Dr. Dunlap’s courses, and has emerged as an area of interest in her research program. As a non-traditional animal science student herself, she is keenly aware of cultural pressures that can exist within the discipline. Resultantly, she has worked to develop courses that do not include an assumption of previous exposure to agricultural and animal science related activities. In the fall of 2021 she will be part of the initial cohort of instructors to teach in the 21st Century Classroom Building at Texas A&M University.
Her professional memberships include the Interdisciplinary Faculty of Reproductive Biology at Texas A&M University, the International Society for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, and the American Society of Animal Science.
