McKinney School of Law at IUPUI. He also served as the vice chair of the Monroe County Chapter of the American Red Cross, an organization for which he has volunteered since 2002.

For the past four years, O'Guinn has served as a residential fellow for freshmen and sophomores in an IU Bloomington residence hall, providing mentoring and guidance. Since 2008, he has taught in IU's School of Education, developing and teaching both the "College Student and the Law" master's course and "Legal Aspects of Higher Education" doctoral course.
