President Moore discussed her strategies for a strong foundation for student success, new program development, retention, assessment and building a positive environment at Columbia College.

President Moore is committed to strategic planning of the college’s activities and women’s advancement in higher education.

For the next two years, her focus is on student enrollment, strengthening the finances of the college and encouraging faculty and staff to prepare students for a successful future in the workplace.

“I am extremely impressed with the students at Columbia College, and I am impressed by the experience that the college provides for students and the ability to grow,” Moore said.

According to Moore, talking and collaborating with students have been the most rewarding aspects of leading Columbia College.

Last year, EQUITY, a diversity and inclusion task force, which includes a group of faculty, staff and students, was created on campus with the focus of discussing and implementing multicultural understanding and cultural competence.

Moore explained this is a long-term initiative to help all of Columbia College to evaluate and strengthen our assets. Discussing our responsibility as an institution and letting our college’s policies reflect what students say and want to be aware of will assist the college in reaching out to various prospective students.

As part of her strategy to maintain a healthy fiscal position for the institution, she intends to accomplish the following:

  • Grow each segment of the college
  • Identify new revenue streams such as holding summer athletic camps
  • Partner with organizations in the community to create services for the Columbia College community, such as health care services and a coffee shop.  

Moore was recognized by The Columbia Business Monthly as one of Columbia’s 50 most influential people. She noted that the recognition was an opportunity for Columbia College to enhance its visibility.

Born in New Hampshire, Moore joined Columbia College as interim provost September 2016 and was named president January 2018.

She holds Bachelor of Arts and Master of Science degrees in biology from Montclair State University, New Jersey and a doctorate in marine biology from Northeastern University, Massachusetts.

Moore started her career in education as a high school science teacher. She has served as provost and vice president of Academic Affairs at Mercy College, New York and president of Lyndon State College, Vermont.

In her spare time, Moore enjoys river walking, visiting museums, watching films and experiencing symphony concerts.
