Business college names first director of assessment

Myra Moore

Myra Moore has been named to the newly created position of director of assessment, rankings and undergraduate programs in the Terry College of Business.

Moore, who will continue to serve as a senior lecturer, previously was director of assessment and coordinator of graduate teaching assistants in the economics department.

“Myra has a proven track record as an outstanding advocate for our students and our college,” said Terry College Dean Robert T. Sumichrast. “She is widely respected as a gifted teacher, and these new responsibilities reflect her extraordinary performance as an administrator as well.”

Moore will continue to direct assessment activities within the Terry College, including assurance of learning documentation and reporting for all degree programs and majors. Moore’s new duties include overseeing the Terry Undergraduate Programs Office, which provides support for student recruitment, admissions and curriculum management. She also will coordinate external requests for data related to business school rankings.

“I like that I’ll continue to interact with students in ways other than in the classroom,” Moore said. “A big part of this position concerns finding out how well students are learning what we want them to learn. That notion is important to me. I think if we do a good job in the classroom, the rankings will naturally follow.”
