Owens Community College Vice President Named to Leadership Posts
Owens Community College Vice President of Human Resources, Daniel Hauenstein, recently was chosen to serve on two prestigious professional and community organizations. The Greater Toledo Urban League named Hauenstein to a three-year term as one of its Board of Directors members. He also was selected to a two-year term as President of the Ohio Association of Community Colleges (OACC) Human Resource Officers group.
"To be selected by the Greater Toledo Urban League and the OACC Human Resource Officers group to serve in these leadership positions is a wonderful honor and a great opportunity to collaborate with area community leaders and professionals dedicated to promoting the highest cultural and educational standards throughout our region," Hauenstein said.
Founded in 1994, the Greater Toledo Urban League was created with the mission of promoting multiculturalism, cooperation and understanding among people of all races and cultures in Northwest Ohio and Southern Michigan. The local organization is one of 115 affiliates nationwide comprising the National Urban League.
The Greater Toledo Urban League Board of Directors consists of over 40 community leaders who are dedicated to providing direct services in the areas of employment, training, business and career development to the surrounding community.
Established nearly a decade ago, the OACC Human Resource Officers group is committed to enhancing and adhering to various human resource policies and procedures on behalf of Ohio's two-year colleges. The state organization is devoted to promoting continued professional development and heightened collaboration with the Ohio Board of Regents and state legislators on behalf of member academic institutions.
The OACC Human Resource Officers group membership includes chief human resource officers and staff representatives from two-year colleges throughout the state. As President, Hauenstein will serve as a liaison between the member schools and the State Attorney General's Office, advocating for member two-year college human resource offices. He also will be responsible for arranging an array of speakers and seminars for organizational and professional development meetings.
Hauenstein, who joined Owens' administration in 2001, has more than 20 years experience in human resources and addressing diversity and multicultural issues in the workplace. Prior to serving as the College's Vice President of Human Resources, he previously held human resources positions with the city of Cleveland and Cuyahoga Community College.
His professional and community involvement also includes membership with the Toledo Area Human Resources Association and the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources. Hauenstein also served for more than one year as a Board of Directors member on the Toledo Chapter of the American Heart Association.
A native of New York, Hauenstein earned both his bachelor's degree in history and master's degree in business administration from the State University of New York at Buffalo. He now resides in Toledo with his wife, Jillian.
