James L. Moore III, vice provost for diversity and inclusion and chief diversity officer at Ohio State University, has been selected by the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities as the recipient of the 2022 Michael P. Malone International Leadership Award. The award is given annually to recognize individuals who have made significant contributions to international education at public land-grant institutions.
Dr. Moore’s leadership and support have benefited international and underrepresented student populations through a partnership with the Office of International Affairs and the creation of the Critical Dialogue Series and the Fall Break Social Justice trips. These experiential programs deepen student awareness and understanding of critical community and global issues and include field-based learning in local neighborhoods and U.S. cities of cultural and historical significance.
“I am deeply humbled and honored to receive the prestigious Michael P. Malone International Leadership Award,” Dr. Moore said. “In the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, I have made major investments in education abroad experiences for our scholars. I expect that these investments will continue in coming years. I look forward to continuing to work with the Office of International Affairs to take things to another level.”
Dr. Moore is a graduate of Delaware State University, where he majored in English education. He holds a master’s degree and a doctorate in counselor education from Virginia Tech.
