Learning that is active and built through collaboration across campus is core to what we do and who we are. Connecting students to opportunities in and out of the classroom (with alums and with employers for instance) and providing the best in student services can also set our experience apart.

Chair: Daisy Purdy, Assistant Professor and Associate Provost of Community, Equity, and Engagement

Vice Chairs: Jon Conrad, Vice President for Human Resources and Greg Meyer, Associate Dean of Students


We continually seek to be a transformative institution bringing voice to our shared values. In these times, this means deep reflection on who we are and how we serve students from all backgrounds. Ultimately, we want to support the success of every student and be a place where our graduates and the whole community can take action together toward equity.

Chairs: Mark Reed, Vice President for Finance & Administration and Chief Financial Officer and Jill Anderson, Vice President for Development and Alumni Engagement

Vice Chair: David Brandes, Chief Information Officer


For centuries, Moravian has made a difference, and that mission comes to life anew every day through the amazing effort of each of you. Investing in our teams is critical. Additionally, to achieve our future aspirations requires an innovative use of technology and physical spaces that are adaptive and vibrant.

Chairs: Cynthia Kosso, Provost and Dean of Faculty and Scott Dams, Vice President for Enrollment and Marketing

Vice Chair: Katie P. Desiderio, Executive Director of Graduate Business Programs and Assistant Vice President, Corporate-Educational Partnerships


Our future growth will be driven by continued investment in current and new academic programs and by new external partnerships. Relatedly, we have the chance to better tell our unique story and be creative with how we recruit.
