Daniel Howanec

Assistant to the Dean of Student Affairs

My name is Daniel Howanec and I have the pleasure of serving as the Assistant to the Dean of Student Affairs for Sixth College.

I grew up in Temescal Valley, CA and moved out to San Diego in 2016 to begin my studies as a UCSD student, where I graduated in 2020 with a double B.S. in Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience and Business Psychology. Higher Education/Student Affairs was my goal in college, but due to the pandemic my career path took a tangent.

After spending a year working at a law firm in San Diego for mass tort litigation, I was finally able to return to UCSD as a student affairs professional. My goal is help students in Sixth College and across campus discover and reach their greatest potential.

When I'm away from work, you can often find me at the beach, binge-watching TV shows and movies, reading fiction, playing PC games, or just exploring the city!
