Dr. James L. Moore, associate provost for the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at The Ohio State University, will visit UW-Eau Claire to provide insight on recruiting and retaining a more diverse student population.
As part of his visit Moore will present his research on mentoring and retaining males in higher education Feb. 23 from 4-5:30 p.m. in Room 1415 of Centennial Hall. The results of his research, he said, can also be applied to women of color.
From Feb. 23-25, Moore will meet with various departments throughout the university, sharing his extensive research and expertise as a College of Education and Human Ecology distinguished professor of urban education at The Ohio State University.
The goal of his visit is to help empower and equip faculty, staff and students to create and develop initiatives to increase diversity at UW-Eau Claire, promoting success inside and outside the classroom and throughout the Eau Claire community.
Moore's lecture and visit are sponsored by the Academic Skills Center and the College of Education and Human Sciences, both of which are committed to developing relationships across campus, partnerships with each department and connections with the surrounding Eau Claire community that will help the university achieve overall excellence.
