I am pleased to announce that following a national search, we have selected Teresa Dominguez to serve as Director, Division of Environmental Health and Safety on a permanent basis, effective immediately. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the search committee and other members of the university community who assisted in conducting a national search to fill this position.
In this role, Terri will provide strategic leadership and will be responsible for the development, implementation and administration of comprehensive environmental health and safety programs and policies for the University of Connecticut’s Storrs and regional campuses. She will also work closely with her counterpart, the Director of Environmental Health and Safety at UConn Health.
Terri has been at the university since 1992, and has held several positions within EHS with increasing responsibility, most recently being promoted to Interim Director of Environmental Health and Safety. As a Certified Safety Professional with over 25 years of comprehensive experience in the environmental health and safety field, Terri is highly qualified for the role as EHS Director at one of the nation’s top research universities. Prior to coming to UConn, Terri worked for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as an Industrial Safety and Health Inspector. She earned a B.S. in Human Ecology from Rutgers University and an M.S. in Public Health from the University of Massachusetts – Amherst.
Terri brings extensive experience, expertise, and a history of collaboration, service, and engagement with the university community to this appointment. Please join me in congratulating her on this new position.
