Brian Dominy named associate dean for undergraduate engagement and curriculum development


Clemson University has named Brian Dominy the associate dean for undergraduate engagement and curriculum development within the Division of Undergraduate Studies.

Dominy has served Clemson University in various roles for nearly two decades, most recently as the associate dean for academic policy and program effectiveness in the Graduate School since February 2018.

“Brian brings a wealth of experience from previous positions in the College of Science and the Graduate School,” said Sean Brittain, dean of undergraduate learning. “In this role, he will lead initiatives to elevate experiential learning, amplify student academic success, support curricular development and collaborate with the Office of Teaching Effectiveness and Innovation to advocate for best practices for teaching and learning.”

Dominy’s award-winning service efforts as a College of Science faculty member focused significantly on the development and assessment of academic programs at the departmental, college and University levels. At the Graduate School, he led the Academic Policy and Procedure Review Program in partnership with Misty Stewart (Director of Student Success), Dena Smith (Executive Assistant to the Dean) and the faculty and student representatives on the Graduate Advisory Committee and Graduate Council.

“It continues to be my honor and a privilege to serve the faculty, staff and students at Clemson University,” said Dominy. “I’m looking forward to listening carefully to all stakeholders in undergraduate education and supporting faculty in their continuous pursuit of improved curricula for enhanced student learning.”

Before arriving at Clemson, Dominy was an NIH Ruth L. Kirschstein Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard University. He earned a B.S. in biological sciences from Carnegie Mellon University and a Ph.D. focusing on computational biophysics at The Scripps Research Institute.

Dominy will begin his new position on January 8, 2024.
