Dr. Chris Moore
Provost and Vice-President Academic (Acting)
Chris Moore’s contributions to Dalhousie go back to 1988, when he joined the Department of Psychology as an assistant professor. During his tenure as dean of the Faculty of Science, Dr. Moore achieved significant enrolment growth, implemented two new BSc programs in Ocean Sciences and Medical Sciences, developed the 2+2 programs in Economics and in Math and Stats among other international initiatives, and brought the Marine Affairs program into the Faculty of Science.
