Clemson University named Doug Hallenbeck of Southern Methodist University in Dallas as its executive director of housing on August 27, 2007. Hallenbeck is assistant vice president for student affairs and director of residence life and student housing at SMU, a position he has held since 2003. Prior to that, he worked at Oklahoma State University as assistant director of residential life and at the University of Florida as a residence director. Hallenbeck is president of the Southwest Association of College and University Housing Officers. “Clemson is truly fortunate to welcome someone with Doug’s experience, expertise and personal qualities to this position. He will be a great asset to Clemson, student affairs and university housing,” said Verna Howell, associate vice president for student affairs. “Clemson is poised to do big things and housing will play an important role. Doug has the experience, creativity and vision to help lead our program to the next level.” For Hallenbeck, leading university housing is a family affair. His father, Daniel Hallenbeck, was director of housing at the University of Georgia for 15 years. Hallenbeck said he originally wanted to go into psychology, but decided to follow in his father’s footsteps instead. Hallenbeck said he remembers when he was a freshman in college, and his father was inducted as president of the Association of College and University Housing Officers - International. “I remember how important he was in the profession of housing,” Hallenbeck said. “It was the first time I realized that he did make a difference.” Hallenbeck said he and his family – wife Amy and children Sydney, 12; Ainsley, 10; and McKinley, 6 – are thrilled to be joining the Clemson family. “Clemson is an institution on the move, and it’s exciting to be a part of that,” he said. Hallenbeck graduated from Georgia College in 1991 with a bachelor’s in psychology and earned a master’s in counselor education with an emphasis in student development from Mississippi State University in 1993. He earned a Ph.D. in student personnel administration from Oklahoma State in 2002. Hallenbeck takes the position October 15, 2007.
