University Honors Program
Dr. Paul A. Moore, Director
I'm Paul Moore, the Honors Program Director. It is my job to ensure that the Honors Program serves the intellectual needs of the students in the program. My main responsibility as Honors Director is to schedule courses and work to improve the quality of Honors courses. I recruit new faculty into the program, visit Honors classes, monitor student evaluations of the faculty, and assist faculty who are interested in improving their courses. I also handle student complaints about courses, provide academic advising to students, chair the Bashore Scholarship Committee and counsel students interested in doing Honors Projects and Graduating with University Honors. If I can help you in any of these capacities, please let me know.
When I'm not directing the Honors Program, I'm a scientist in the Biology Department working on behavior and ecology. My office is always open and available to students so come by for a chat anytime.
I have interests outside of biology and Honors which include playing ultimate Frisbee (I am faculty advisor to the club team), riding my road bike or mountain bike any time I can, reading eastern philosophy, and playing with my two kids. I'm on campus every day from 7:30 to 5:30 either in the Honors Office or in the Biology Department.
