March 21, 2010
Ronald F. Holden II has recently been named the multicultural recruitment coordinator and admission representative at Mount Union College.
Holden comes to Mount Union from Baker University in Kansas, where he most recently served as the director of multicultural affairs. During his time at Baker University, he served as an undergraduate instructor, interim co-director of Greek life, intramurals program coordinator, housefather of Delta Tau Delta Fraternity, campus work study program coordinator and admissions representative, as well as serving as the advisor of numerous student organizations. He was instrumental in chartering the first historically African-American sorority and fraternity at the university and was a founding member of the Social Justice Task Force, which was created to address diversity, multiculturalism and social justice in the Baker community.
In November of 2009, Holden facilitated and served as a speaker at the Not Another Statistic conference at Mount Union, an event co-sponsored by Mount Union’s Black Student Union and Baldwin-Wallace College’s Black Student Alliance. The conference focuses on a variety of topics including diversity issues, multicultural motivation and intercultural communication, all while promoting diversity from a broader perspective.
“Ron’s training, experience and expertise will help us tell the Mount Union story and its outstanding educational opportunities to an ever widening circle of potential students,” said Grace Chalker, director of admission.
Holden earned a bachelor of arts degree in psychology from Baker University in 1995 and earned a master of arts degree in urban leadership and higher education administration from the University of Missouri-Kansas City in 2007. He also is a member of the American College Personnel Association (ACPA).
