Moore, 38, has worked in OU’s Department of e-Learning and Instructional Support (e-LIS) for 15 years, starting as a student employee and moving up the ranks to become director in 2015. He is responsible for leadership and oversight of the department, including supervision and professional development of staff, budget development and planning.

Among other duties, Moore monitors the research and implementation of new technologies as they relate to e-Learning and oversees an annual departmental Teaching with Technology Conference. In addition, he and his staff collaborate with faculty and academic units to create fully online and blended programs and degrees.

Along with his full-time position, Moore is a lecturer in the College of Arts and Sciences and School of Business Administration, has served on numerous university committees and councils, and received university honors, including Employee of the Month and the Administrative Professional Award. A self-described “lifelong learner,” Moore has earned four degrees from Oakland, including a double major for his undergraduate and most recently, a Ph.D. in Educational Leadership, which he completed in 2015.

His academic career and experiences have inspired him to mentor others. He is a mentor to students in the Educational Leadership Ph.D. program and in the Leadership OU program, which is focused on helping undergraduate students prepare for leadership roles. He also recently graduated from the first Oakland University Leadership Academy, a program designed to further develop the members’ leadership skills, increase their contributions to OU, and build stronger relationships with their peers.

Beyond his contributions at Oakland, Moore has participated in 25 events for the 501st Legion, a Star Wars themed charity group that raises money for causes such as Make-a-Wish and the Starlight Starbright Children’s Foundation.
