The University of the Virgin Islands has named Stephan Moore the dean of students at its St. Croix campus.

Moore has been a professional in the field of higher education and student affairs for more than 12 years, and his appointment at UVI began on July 1, according to a statement issued Wednesday by the university.

Moore comes to UVI from Georgia Perimeter College, where he held the position of director of student life while serving on numerous enrollment management, academic, advisement and other student affairs committees. He also served as director of residence life and housing at the Art Institute of Atlanta.

Moore also was an area coordinator at North Carolina Central University and has served as a student affairs specialist at Louisburg College.

Moore holds a master of Arts in Education degree, with emphasis on educational leadership from Argosy University and a bachelor of Science degree in Family Studies from Campbell University in North Carolina.

Moore said in a prepared statement that he wants to ensure that UVI develops a school spirit where students, faculty and staff are proud to say that they are Buccaneers.

"My short-term goal is to create and enhance a student-friendly campus feel for student life," said Moore. "I want to make sure that each and every student feels that UVI is a vibrant and comprehensive place of learning."
