SMU Classroom Named After Dallas Trial Attorney Rogge Dunn

Longtime adjunct professor, donor honored with classroom in family’s name 

DALLAS – SMU is recognizing Dallas trial attorney Rogge Dunn’s long-term support and contributions to the university with the naming of the Rogge, Cathy and Ross Dunn Classroom in the James M. Collins Executive Education Center.  

Mr. Dunn has taught for more than 20 years as an adjunct professor in the Executive MBA program at the SMU Cox School of Business, where he is also a graduate. In addition to his commitment to the MBA program, Mr. Dunn has supported the university with contributions throughout the years.  

“We thank Rogge for giving back in two ways: through his generosity in naming a classroom in the Collins Center and 20-plus years of dedication he’s shown as a highly rated Cox School adjunct professor,” says Cox School Dean Matthew Myers. “Rogge’s contributions are consequential and long-lasting.”  

Mr. Dunn and his law firm, the Rogge Dunn Group, often support civic and charitable activities in the Dallas area, including Habitat for Humanity and the Perot Museum, where a Tyrannosaurus rex model from the Jurassic Park movie that he donated is on permanent display.  

“It’s important to give back to a community that has supported our firm throughout the years,” said Mr. Dunn. “The ability to teach at SMU for many years is an honor, and I want to show my appreciation to the university.”   

Board certified in Civil Trial and Labor and Employment Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, Mr. Dunn has achieved notable honors in his legal career, including recognition in Best Lawyers in America 2021 listing and D CEO magazine’s 2021 Dallas 500 list, which highlights influential business leaders in North Texas.
