For 20 years, Grey Dimenna served as vice president and general counsel at Monmouth University, a position that he was the first to hold. Prior to joining Monmouth, all of the University's legal matters were handled by outside counsel. Grey established the organizational framework of the General Counsel's office which has grown through the years to meet the increasing challenges of federal regulations and the myriad legal and compliance issues that face higher education.
His services to the University have included providing guidance to the Board of Trustees in numerous matters; serving on many search committees and staffing two presidential search committees; furnishing advice on policy issues, governmental affairs, labor relations and acting as the administration's negotiator during collective bargaining with the University's various labor unions. He has served on committees too numerous to mention; and his advice is often sought by the University community on matters far removed from the legal sphere.
From 1991 to 1995, Grey was Assistant Section Chief/Senior Deputy Attorney General for the New Jersey Department of Law and Public Safety where he supervised 25 deputy attorneys general, including attorneys representing the state colleges. He was primary counsel for Montclair State University and also represented the Department of Higher Education and the New Jersey Higher Education Assistance Authority.
He earned his bachelor's degree in History from the State University of New York at Binghamton and a Juris Doctorate at the Syracuse University College of Law.
Grey has distinguished himself at Monmouth as a man of integrity, with a deep knowledge of the law and has displayed wisdom in dealing with many delicate issues.
