Dr. Lydia Maynard joined the mathematics department at Dominican University in 2012 after earning her doctorate in Mathematics Education at Teachers College, Columbia University. During the time she was working on her degree, she worked as an adjunct instructor in Manhattan at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and the Fashion Institute of Technology. 

Beyond the classroom, Dr. Maynard’s interests include community service and music. She has traveled to Honduras, Bolivia, Costa Rica and Mexico to volunteer with local groups. She has also volunteered with Habitat for Humanity on two separate occasions — to Philadelphia and Baltimore, to help construct affordable housing for families in need. She has also volunteered with Dominican University students to go on Midnight Runs to bring food to the homeless on the streets of Manhattan. She also directs the a capella group on campus, Pitches and Cream. The group has performed at various school events, a Rockland Boulders game and even at a Mets game at Citifield.
