Ryan O’Gorman began his career in higher education when he joined Dominican College in August of 2004 as one of the Assistant Directors of Residence Life after just graduating from St. Thomas Aquinas College with a B. S. in Psychology. Over the course of his time at Dominican as an Assistant Director of Residence Life, he held several part time positions which included Assistant Director of Evening and Special Sessions, Coordinator of Volunteer Services, and a Freshman Seminar Instructor.
In July of 2010, Ryan was promoted to Director of Residence Life and is responsible for the oversight of four full time professional staff, two part time staff, 26 Resident Assistants, and the resident population. In 2006, Ryan was a recipient of Rockland County’s Annual Forty Under 40 Program, in 2009 graduated from Leadership Rockland and in 2016 was the Recipient of The President’s Award from the Rotary Club of Pearl River. In December of 2016, Ryan graduated from Nyack College with an M.S in Organizational Leadership successfully defending his thesis titled, “The Relationship Between Self-Efficacy and Academic Motivation.”
In his very limited spare time, Ryan is a Big Brother mentor to his 16 year old “Little”, a member of the Pearl River Rotary Club, on the Board for Leadership Rockland where he is the Chair of the Program Committee, and conducts Midnight Runs to NYC giving food and clothing to the homeless in Manhattan.
When not working and volunteering, Ryan loves to travel for food and has been to Maine for lobster, Boston for clam chowder, Chicago for deep dish pizza, and Maryland for crab cakes. Lastly, he is on a quest for the best burger in the country! If you have any suggestions, please feel free to contact him!
