John R. Moses ‘14
M.Ed. in Higher Education, Student Affairs
Fellowship Site: Girard School of Business, Merrimack College
John R. Moses is from Pittsburgh, PA. He went to Robert Morris University, where he obtained his degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing and a minor in Theatre. Moses joined the Higher Education program at Merrimack because he realized that he wanted to do be in the field of student affairs for a lifetime. From being a student leader to a full time employment at Pittsburgh Technical Institute’s Resident Coordinator, he knew it made sense to make the transition. Moses also loves the college-aged student and likes seeing the dynamic changes a student goes through during their time in college.
Moses serves as the Graduate Fellow in the Girard School of Business. His main priority is academic advising. He advises both freshmen business students and also some undeclared sophomores, this is roughly about three hundred students. He is also a part of a committee that reviews transfer credits to see whether the coursework being transferred into Merrimack can be substituted. Additionally, Moses reviews the Capstone program for the undergraduate business students and responsible for updating the marketing material used for the Girard School of Business and Merrimack College.
John R. Moses’ Testimonial
” Merrimack’s program has been meticulously planned. Everything that we do is done with purpose. I have never felt like anything that I have done, am doing, or will do is of no value to my future career goals. Although my placement is outside of my desired functional area, I am gaining invaluable skills inside the classroom and in my fellowship placement that will easily transfer to other areas of personal interest.
I also am a huge proponent of the one year program. It is intensive. It is hard. It will seem overwhelming often. Nevertheless, I feel like this program has already made me twice the student affairs professional I was before.”
