Recognizing a current faculty member for making a difference in their students’ lives.

Dr. Laura Moore

Dr. Laura Moore will celebrate her 15th year of service to Monmouth College along with receiving the Hatch Award for Distinguished Teaching. Each year, Dr. Moore supervises student participants in the Kieft Summer Research Program, set up as a gift from the illustrious Richard “Doc” Kieft. This hand-on scholarship from students has launched them into a variety of successful fields and maintained the Chemistry program as one of the many prides of Monmouth College.

In addition to effective research and teaching, Dr. Moore has directed the Pre-Med program since her hire, co-coordinated the SOFIA summer research program for 11 years, and is the co-coordinator of the College’s new neuroscience major, as well as serving on numerous standing committees.
