Dr. Eric Moyen has been named chair of the Department of Health, Exercise Science & Secondary Education (HESSE) in the Helen DeVos College of Education.  Dr. Moyen is replacing Dr. Bill Estes who has been promoted to dean.

“Everyone in the DeVos College of Education, and across the university, has readily seen Eric’s administrative leadership these past few years with First Year Programs, along with his excellence in both teaching and scholarship,” said Dr. Estes. “His skills are a perfect fit to chair the department and work with the academic administration.”

Dr. Moyen joined the HDCOE in the fall of 2004. He is currently serving as an associate professor of education and the director of First Year Programs.

Along with his teaching duties, Dr. Moyen has served as coordinator of the "teaching coaches" faculty development initiative, and he initiated the Lee University Oral History Project. He has also conducted research on the impact of international education experiences while directing cross-cultural student-teaching trips to Greece and Ghana.

Dr. Moyen's other research and writing interests focus on history and policy in higher education. He has published a biography of educational reformer Frank L. McVey with the University Press of Kentucky and a textbook for freshmen with Dr. Matthew Melton, dean of Lee’s College of Arts and Sciences. Dr. Moyen's essays and reviews have appeared in the History of Education Quarterly and Insidehighered.com.

His efforts in the Office of First-Year Programs have focused on strengthening peer-leadership and service-learning. 

“I am looking forward to focusing on the academic side of university life, and I can't imagine a better faculty to collaborate with,” said Dr. Moyen.

Dr. Moyen also serves on the Board of Directors at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Cleveland.
