Dr. Lori Moore, Associate Professor within the Department of Agricultural Leadership, Education, and Communications will be the Division’s first fellow. Dr. Moore begins her appointment on Tuesday, August 30th, 2016.

The DSA Fellows Program highlights the Division’s commitment to enhancing student learning through the creation of seamless academic partnerships and integrated curricular and co‐curricular transformational, high impact learning experiences.

The Division of Student Affairs Fellows Program provides an opportunity for faculty to serve in a fellow position within the Division focused on enhancing existing and identifying new Student Affairs/Academic Affairs partnerships that enrich academic degree programs and instructional initiatives, foster seamless learning opportunities for students, and ensure high‐quality academic partnerships between Student Affairs and academic college or targeted academic affairs units.

Dr. Moore teaches undergraduate and graduate classes in introductory leadership, leadership theory, youth leadership, adult education, and methods of teaching. She is also the co-coordinator for the university-wide Leadership Living Learning Community (L3C).

In addition to teaching, Dr. Moore will work alongside the Residence Life Academic Support Initiatives team to engage in scholarly activity related to retention/persistence of students who participate in Living Learning Programs, detail the impact of participation in High Impact Educational Practices, as well as examining peer mentoring’s impact in the residential experience.
