SPP 026 | Carol Moore’s Journey from Marine Biology Professor to University President

Dr. Carol Moore has had quite a journey over her career. She spent five years teaching at a high school, taught at a community college, and earned a doctorate in marine biology.

Then she jumped to administration and things really got interesting. In 1992, she became provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs at Mercy College (NY). In 1998, she became president of Lyndon State College, a position she held for 13 years. She is now interim president for Burlington College in Vermont.
