Dan brings with him to the board more than twenty years of experience in higher education, and a passion for values-driven institutions. Dan holds a Ph.D. in American Studies from the University of New Mexico, a Master’s degree in Popular Culture from Bowling Green State University, and a BA in Communications and Media Arts from Antioch College. Dan is also a 1990 alumnus of the Scholar Intern Program at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change, in Atlanta, where he studied the history of the Civil Rights movement and Dr. King’s philosophy of nonviolence. While a student at Antioch, Dan worked in several different capacities for their Admissions Office, and was involved in alumni efforts to save the school from closure in 2008. Dan is delighted to be back in his native California, and to be amidst the natural beauty and calm of the Woolman campus.
