Moore Accepted into Academy for Innovative Higher Education Leadership

Tuesday, August 23, 2016

Kemille Moore, UNCW Associate Dean for Student Policy and Curriculum Coordination, has been accepted for admission into the Academy for Innovative Higher Education Leadership.

The Academy, a partnership between Arizona State University and Georgetown University, is a premier training ground for those in senior leadership positions across higher education. The eight-month program equips participants to lead organizational change at colleges and universities while facing next-generation governance structures, credentials and financial challenges.

“Participating in this academy will provide me the opportunity to learn more about the critical issues facing higher education,” said Moore. “More importantly, my participation will also provide the training and skills needed to translate my broad understanding of these issues into positive, sustainable change for students and faculty at UNCW.”

Moore has served in her current role at UNCW since 2014. From 2002 to 2006, as director of UNCW’s General College, she led its growth and transition into the University College. As dean of University College, a role she held through 2012, she was instrumental in the curricular development and implementation of programs for first-year students such as Cornerstone Learning Communities and the Synergy Common Reading Program.

She holds a Ph.D. in art history from the University of Washington and teaches in the art and art history department at UNCW.
