Nova Southeastern University (NSU) is pleased to announce the appointment of Michael Mominey to Associate Vice President of Advancement. Currently, he serves as NSU’s Director of Athletics and will retain those duties while stepping into this new role.
“Michael’s meaningful relationships with alumni and student athletes who have played on our fields as well as his admirable reputation among the athletics community will continue to move NSU’s mission forward,” said Dr. George L. Hanbury, president and CEO of NSU. “This cross-disciplinary and blended approach will serve the university well and will provide opportunities for the NSU coaching staff to work more closely alongside the advancement team.”
Mominey will work in tandem with Terry Mularkey, NSU’s Vice President of Advancement and Chief of Staff, to create collaborative interactions in a team-oriented approach to fundraising, advancement, and development. This will support NSU’s overarching goal of achieving institutional preeminence in an innovative way while remaining student centered.
He joined NSU almost 21 years ago and has progressively advanced in various leadership positions, serving as athletic director and head baseball coach. Under his direction, the Sharks have garnered eight team NCAA Division II National Championships, 23 individual NCAA Division II National Championships, 16 South Regional Championships and 37 Sunshine State Conference titles.
In addition to the athletic prowess and alignment with the university mission of a student-centered approach to education, Shark student athletes have also performed in the classroom under Mominey’s guidance. The Sharks recorded a 3.33 departmental GPA in the 2019-20 academic year, marking the eighth straight year with the program exceeding 3.15 GPA and the 18th consecutive year with a 3.00 GPA or better. Before focusing solely on the program’s administration, Mominey was also head coach of the baseball team, winning over 300 games (2000-2010) and coached three current Major League Baseball players during his tenure.
A native of Euclid, Ohio, Mominey earned a bachelor’s degree in Education/Sport Management from Bowling Green State University (Ohio) and a master’s degree in Sports Administration from St. Thomas University (Fla.).
