About Donald Harden

Donald HardenDr. Harden, served on the University faculty and administration from 1970 until 1994. As chief student services officer throughout the University's early years, he built and guided many of the original student support operations. From the community perspective, Dr. Harden’s most far-reaching contributions were as the engineer of programs and projects that forged bonds between the new University and the region's civic establishment and general public. His accomplishments included fostering growth of the Founders Association, leading the University's move to Division I athletics, and creating the Phoenix Fund.

Many of Dr. Harden's most fruitful efforts to build campus-community partnerships resulted from alliances he made during countless evenings and weekends of volunteer service off campus. His leadership roles have ranged from the Chamber of Commerce to youth, health, symphony and museum organizations. In 1987, he led Brown County's United Way to its first campaign ever to exceed $2 million. His corporate directorships have included Firstar Bank of Green Bay, the Morley Murphy Company and TNT Crust, Inc.

Following graduation from Michigan State University and service as a U.S. Air Force navigator, he worked in management with General Motors Corporation; Lansing, Mich.

He later served as Assistant Director of Placement and as an Instructor in the College of Education at Michigan State University and as Assistant Dean, Assistant Professor and Secretary of the Faculty at MSU's innovative residential school, Lyman Briggs College.
