M. Davis "Dave" O'Guinn, currently chief litigation counsel at Indiana University's Office of the Vice President and General Counsel, has been appointed vice provost for student affairs and dean of students at IU Bloomington. O'Guinn's appointment is a two-year term. He succeeds Lori Reesor, who has served in the role since July 2016. Reesor has been named vice chancellor for student affairs at University of Wisconsin-Madison.

O'Guinn earned his bachelor's degree in political science from DePauw University, his master's degree in higher education and student affairs from the IU School of Education in Bloomington, and his juris doctorate, magna cum laude, from Notre Dame Law School.

While earning his master's degree, O'Guinn worked at both the Indiana Memorial Union and the IU Career Development Center. He served as assistant director of the Student Center and student activities at Quinnipiac College, where he was a member of the Multicultural Awareness Committee and the Student Affairs Research and Retention Committee, followed by a position as director of student activities and Greek life at Centre College in Kentucky. During law school, he was special assistant to the director of Notre Dame's Student Union and an assistant rector in the residence halls.

O'Guinn joined IU as an associate general counsel in 2007, becoming chief litigation counsel in 2014. Among his many areas of primary focus are student and faculty affairs, employment, and athletics. Before joining IU, O'Guinn was a senior associate in the labor and employment department at Dinsmore & Shohl in Cincinnati.

In 2011, O'Guinn completed the Harvard Negotiation Institute and earned a Certificate in Public Policy Mediation from the IU Robert H. 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. O'Guinn also teaches an undergraduate course every year in IU's School of Public and Environmental Affairs for aspiring human resources professionals.
