Next month, APSU will welcome Stephen Dominy, the new coordinator for Fraternity and Sorority Affairs.

Student Affairs did a nationally-advertised search to fill the position. There were 44 applicants for the position, and Dean of Students Gregory Singleton conducted phone interviews with six of those applicants.

Based upon credentials and past experience, Dominy was offered the position in late December 2013, replacing former coordinator Brianna Lombardozzi, who departed for Clemson University last October.

“I think Stephen will do an outstanding job,” Singleton said. “He brings to the position national recognition.”

Some of Dominy’s experience, according to Singleton, includes “working for a national fraternity as a national staff member and having a national graduate program at Florida State.”

Dominy is finishing fraternity council recruitment at his current university, Kennesaw State. He will begin his new position at APSU on Monday, Feb. 3.

“[Dominy] is well known nationally for his work with fraternities and sororities,” Singleton said. “He is heavily involved in professional associations and has experience in higher education, already working at a college campus.”

Dominy will be responsible for working with the fraternities’ and sororties’ chapters on campus. He is set to be a part of the Interfraternity Council, Panhellenic Council and the National Panhellenic Conference. He will oversee all services provided for the fraternity and sorority community, as well as APSU’s Greek housing area, Greek Village.

“He comes to APSU with a lot of experience and a passion for working with fraternities and sororities,” Singleton said. “So, I’m confident he’ll do an exceptional job.”

Singleton said he encourages students to come by and meet Dominy once he arrives on campus, since he believes students will enjoy working with Dominy.TAS
