Professor Lombardi

Vicci Hill-Lombardi, Ed.D., ATC

Associate Professor and Chair

Department of Athletic Training


My research emphasis is in the areas of Athletic Training and Applied Physiology.

Being involved for over 20 years in the area of Athletic Training has allowed me to experience the field in a variety of ways. As a Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC), I worked my way through the ranks of Kean University, first as a graduate assistant then as the Assistant Athletic Trainer. I then branched out on my own at Lenape Valley Regional HS, becoming their first ATC. All the while, I taught as an adjunct in both the biology and AT areas, as well as taught high school anatomy and physiology.

In 1996, I embarked upon the new adventure of directing the Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) program at Long Island University (LIU), creating and accrediting the program while working on my Ed.D. in Applied Physiology at Teachers College, Columbia University.

Finally, I arrived at Seton Hall University (SHU) in 2005. Here at SHU I am able to utilize all my accumulated skills to date and lead the MSAT students through their research experience. My lines of research currently include autonomics, exercise physiology and athletic training topics.
