Prior to her service as a University officer and dean, she served as a member of the Committee on Infractions of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) from 1988-1990. Closer to home, O’Hara served as a member of the Lay Review Board for the Diocese of Fort Wayne – South Bend under the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People adopted by the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops from 2002-2011.
