Dunkel has developed 10 courses at MSU, including two core courses, "The Issues of Insects and Human Societies" and "Health, Poverty, Agriculture: Concepts and Action Research." Locally known for the annual "bug buffets" she organizes on campus, she also teaches entomology with foreign language faculty in service-learning courses. She links middle school students, teachers and the local community with nearby scientists to conduct local research.
Dunkel and her co-investigators have involved 131 undergraduate and graduate students in course components conducted in Mali, and an estimated 3,000 students in U.S. components.
