The papers also contain documentation of Moore’s extensive committee work, particularly her work on undergraduate education in the early 2000s, quality of life issues, and the honor code.

Biography of Carole E. Moore

Carole Elizabeth Moore has held several administrative positions at the Georgia Institute of Technology since her arrival at Tech in 1980, including Assistant Dean of Students, Associate Dean of Student Affairs, Director of Academic Services for the Georgia Tech Athletic Association, and Assistant Vice Provost for Academic Affairs. She has also served as a Professor of ancient and medieval history in the School of History, Technology, and Society.

Born in San Diego County, Moore earned a B.A. in History at the University of California at Santa Barbara in 1967. She remained at UCSB after graduating, completing an M.A. in 1969 and a Ph.D. in medieval history in 1973. After several years of teaching history at the University of Notre Dame, and two years as a Continuing Education instructor at Emory University, she arrived at Georgia Tech in 1980, when she accepted the position of Assistant Dean of Students/Women's Activities. In this position and in her position as the Assistant Vice President of Student Affairs, which she assumed in 1984, she began her long career of advocacy for and support of women and women's issues on the Tech campus. Her activities included working on the Title IX Committee, serving as an advisor to the Society of Women Engineers, and helping to form four sororities on Tech's campus. She also continued teaching history, first as an adjunct professor in Social Sciences (1980-1988), and later as an adjunct in History, Technology, and Society (1988-1996).

During the 1990s, Moore continued to rise in the administration at Tech. She became Acting Dean of Students in 1992, and after three years was named Associate Dean of Student Affairs. In 1997, she was appointed Director of Academic Services for the Georgia Tech Athletic Association, and she became an Associate Professor of History, Technology, and Society. The next year, 1998, she was awarded a Women's Leadership Award, marking the 45th anniversary of women on the Georgia Tech campus.

As of 2014, Moore was serving as Assistant Vice Provost for Academic Affairs and as Professor in the School of History, Technology, and Society.
