OCC Appoints Dan Jenuwine Vice Chancellor for Advancement

February 13, 2020
OAKLAND COUNTY, Mich. – January 11, 2020 — Oakland Community College has promoted Daniel Jenuwine to Vice Chancellor for Advancement. In his newly expanded role, Jenuwine will be responsible for philanthropy, alumni affairs, corporate and foundation relations, and community and government relations.

Jenuwine most recently held dual roles as executive director of the OCC Foundation and interim vice chancellor for marketing and communications. He will continue in his marketing and communications role until OCC names his replacement.

“Thanks to Dan’s expertise, the Foundation achieved three consecutive record years in fundraising, and his leadership helped the College pass its millage renewal last November with a resounding 72 percent approval,” said OCC Chancellor Peter Provenzano. “Dan has a special talent for relationship building. OCC and our students will benefit from his expanded role in nurturing our connections to the communities we serve.”

Jenuwine joined OCC in January 2017 as executive director of the OCC Foundation, working with the Foundation staff and volunteer Board of Directors to advance OCC’s mission through philanthropy. He has led OCC’s award-winning marketing and communications team since May 2019, when he was named to his interim post.

“Our community partners are generous to the College in many ways,” said Jenuwine. “I look forward to working more comprehensively with them to empower our students to succeed and advance our community.”

Prior to joining OCC, Jenuwine spent ten years as a consultant with Richner + Richner, a nationally recognized fundraising consulting firm based in Ann Arbor. He also held leadership positions with the Michigan Colleges Alliance, University of Michigan-Dearborn and Wayne State University.

Jenuwine is a member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, Planned Giving Roundtable of Southeast Michigan, International Association of Business Communicators and National Council for Marketing & Public Relations.

He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Wayne State University, graduating summa cum laude, and Master of Science degree in Finance at Walsh College, where he distinguished himself with honors for academic excellence. He and his family live in Troy, Mich.
