He has taught politics, sociology and peace studies at Colgate University, Haverford College, St. Francis University, Penn State University, and Juniata College.

He chaired the Juniata Diversity Task Force for two years (1998-99) and was the lead author of the report which resulted in a number of objectives being adopted by Juniata’s strategic plan – including a significant increase in the population of “domestic minority” students and the creation of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion.

Dan serves as Juniata’s campus Judicial Officer and is director of the Lab component of the College Writing Seminar. He also directs Juniata’s orientation programs for new students and families. He strongly advocates study abroad and is a member of Juniata’s International Education Committee.

He is a musician who plays in area rock, blues, jazz ensembles, and with his wife, Professor Celia Cook-Huffman, and their children Jesse and Grace, tends a small “farmette” near Huntingdon that includes a large fruit and vegetable garden, a small herd of goats, and a Jersey cow. Dan enjoys cheese-making, wine-making, cooking, baking, playing music, and discussing current events and political news.
