Highly Engaged Faculty

“Dan Moore knows so much in his field and has a PhD, but he’s so down to earth that he lets students call him Dan. He always went out of his way to teach, help, and encourage me, even on his own time. Balancing my leadership roles and heavy academic load was overwhelming, but with Dan’s help I was able to make manage it well and even published a scale he developed in our class. I am so appreciative of the opportunities he presented me with, and for pushing me to pursue them.”
