Extension Finance & Planning is pleased to announce a new hire, Sunnianne (Sunni) Dunn.  Sunni joined us on April 8 as an accountant for the Dean's administrative units. She comes to us from the University of Minnesota College of Liberal Arts financial administrative team where she was responsible for various financial duties and payroll since January 2012. Before venturing to the U of M, Sunni worked at the University of Alaska Southeast as a fiscal technician.

In her new role, she will provide financial support related to document preparation for the government relations and communication units, as well as provide financial budget support, oversight and management of Extension administrative programs. Sunni will also be incorporating the development reporting and gift transmittal processing into her position.
