Dan Kallenberger, M.S.
Assistant Dean for Admissions and Financial Services

DanA native of Indiana, Dan's professional career has led him to the Detroit metropolitan area, with the OUWB Admissions leadership team. His journey to OUWB comes with years of experience in medical school admissions, marketing, and recruitment. Prior to joining OUWB in 2017, Dan served in the Office of Admissions at Western Michigan University Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine in Kalamazoo, Michigan. However, his medical school admissions and marketing career began after he earned three bachelor's degrees in economics, sports management, and marketing at Marian University, and a master's degree from the University of Louisville. 

In 2010, Dan returned to his alma mater, Marian University in Indianapolis, Indiana, for a position in the Office of Marketing and Communication. At that time, the university announced it would open Indiana's first new medical school in more than 110 years. Dan became one of the key leaders in the opening of Marian University's College of Osteopathic Medicine where he served as the Assistant Director of Admissions, Marketing, and Recruitment.  

While it is easy to come to work every day when you love what you do, Dan enjoys speaking with pre-health advisors and prospective students throughout the United States and abroad, as well as developing material that highlights the unique opportunities OUWB offers medical students.
