I have known Michelle (Dr. Dunlap) for more than 20 years, having first met her as a student at Connecticut College and thereafter having the pleasure of working with her in community space in service of children and families. In all of my engagement with Michelle, I have found her to be an inspiring, authentic and dynamic leader. Her classroom lectures and community speeches were always compelling; also, what I admire most about Michelle is her honesty, depth of knowledge and the flawless manner with which she shares herself and her work with others. —Tammie Reid, M.Ed
"I have witnessed Dr. Dunlap's presentations for over two decades. Whether presenting to senior colleagues, new faculty, or young (high school) scholars, she is insightful and instantly captivating. She instructs the heart as well as the head and the hand." —Stephanie Y. Evans.
”They are in for some learnin’ congrats!” —Ubuntu Storytellers
“I have known Dr. Michelle Dunlap almost 30 years. She is a well respected psychologist who is a steadfast warrior for justice who regards all humanity with love and kindness. Her research, teaching and scholarship tread new pathways and enriches our world as she shares her experiences and knowledge.” — Evelyn Phillips, Ph.D.
I have known Michelle for over 10 years and it would take a novel to describe this incredible woman. She touches people of all genders, of all ages, of all cultures and in many different times of their life from the most troublesome heartaches through the celebratory times. She will cry with you, listen in silence and non-judgment, she gives the most profound advice and encouragement. She gives the warmest hugs and she prays the deepest prayers with us and for us all. She is humble and gives God credit for all the works that come through her. She is warm and caring and flipside powerful and fierce. She opens doors of opportunities for all to learn and grow, doors that may never have been available to some. This has a rippling effect in that those individuals use those paths to pave a better world. — Kim Charron
Dr. Michelle Dunlap’s life is a sacrifice of her time, energy, passion, and temperance. — M.J. Smith, Inspirational Author

You are a role model sister Michelle. I always said that you have patience and the way you communicate with others transmitted peace to my life. — Rosanna Haith
You have always inspired me to be the best that I can be. You saw greatness in me that I failed to see at times back in college. You were very kind, loving and patient. A lot of my greatest achievements were possible because of you. You pushed me to get involved in the NL community as well as included me in some of your projects. For that, I will forever be grateful .— Jade Beaubrun
