Moore joins the staff at Wittenberg after working in a variety of capacities for Central Michigan University’s Wright Patterson Air Force Base Center, Ohio. She was the associate director of the Ohio Division in 1999-2000, program administrator in 1998-99 and an adjunct associate professor from 1993-2000 — experiences that make Moore confident in her ability to meet some ambitious goals for Wittenberg’s adult leadership programs.
"After working with adult programs for as long as I have, I believe we need to do more for adults than we are currently doing," Moore said. "Adult students have a different set of needs than traditional students."
Among Moore’s other academic stops in recent years are 11 years (1987-98) as a tenured associate professor at Wilberforce University in accounting and CLIMB and stints of various lengths as an adjunct professor of accounting at Wilberforce University, Wright State University, Park College and Central State University. A certified public accountant, Moore worked in the private sector with several different banks and accounting firms between 1976 and 1987. And prior to that, she served as an instructor and assistant professor of speech at Akron University, New Mexico State University, Eastern Michigan University and Ball State University between 1968 and 1975.
With such an extensive educational background, Moore comes to Wittenberg hoping to increase the number of students in the adult leadership programs, develop the organizational leadership program, develop an advisory council for community partnership and work closely with the curriculum for career development.
Most of all, Moore says she looks forward to working in a program and with a university that is committed to academic integrity and finding ways to positively impact the lives of all of its students.
"I recognize the positives of a liberal arts education," said Moore, who holds a bachelor’s degree from Otterbein College, master’s degrees from Eastern Michigan and Ball State and a Ph.D. from The Union Institute. "There is something to be said for the academic integrity of an institution like Wittenberg."
