Michael Fraina

Assistant Professor 10 Months Email School of Business, Room 102
Hello, I am Dr. Mickey Fraina. I have been an Assistant Professor of Sport Management at Farmingdale State College since 2016. Having grown up in nearby Westchester county, sport has always been one of my main passions. I earned my Bachelor's and Master's degrees from the University of Miami and Ph.D. from Ohio State University. My dissertation revolved around the influence of coaches and peers toward high school athletes' levels of motivation. I have a total of nine publcations addressing topics such as mentoring, interscholastic athletic issues, and sport specialization. During my time at FSC, I have also become involved with the University in the High School program, the Research-Aligned Mentorship program, and SUNY University Faculty Senate.
