“Torin is well suited to continue the great work started in the Office for Student Success, as well as incorporate his vision and insights gained from his extensive experience,” says SPHHS Dean Anna Maria Siega-Riz. “He is a coalition builder, supporter of a student-centered approach to decision making, and is passionate about making all students feel that they belong in SPHHS and UMass.”

Moore has served as a student success advisor in SPHHS since 2017. Previously, he spent eight years at Amherst College as their assistant dean of students and director of residential life, and prior to that at Hampshire College as assistant dean of students for enrollment and retention.

Moore is a UMass Amherst alumnus, having earned his undergraduate degree in political science and his master’s in education.

“Torin has many years of experience in student affairs and still finds time to contribute to his community, serving on non-profit boards and truly committing his time to where it is needed,” Siega-Riz says. “We are so fortunate to have him here in SPHHS and now on our leadership team.”
