Meet Cyndee Moore

Dr. Cyndee Perdue Moore is the new executive director of the University of North Georgia’s Oconee Campus.


Moore previously served as regional vice president for operations for American National University, with oversight of 15 campuses of the for-profit institution. Prior to that, she worked as an elementary and high school teacher as well as a lecturer in economics at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia.

“Dr. Moore’s previous experience makes her well-suited to UNG’s multi-campus environment and has provided her with a strong understanding of the challenges of extended campus network oversight,” said Richard Oates, vice president of the Gainesville Campus and administrator of UNG’s Blue Ridge, Cumming and Oconee campuses.

As executive director, Moore coordinates day-to-day operations; works with UNG leadership to ensure the best possible educational environment for students, faculty and staff; and engages in outreach with community leaders and local agencies and businesses in Oconee County.

“I am thrilled to be part of the University of North Georgia family,” Moore said. “I have been extremely impressed by the faculty, staff and students at the Oconee Campus and have received such a warm reception from them. The community at-large has also embraced me, welcoming me into their meetings, groups and organizations. I am really enjoying becoming an active member of this vibrant community.”

Moore has an extensive record of experience working with higher education governing bodies on a state level, and with both state and federal lawmakers. She also has worked with multiple community partners.

“Dr. Moore has a strong background in developing and sustaining effective relationships with community stakeholders, and I know that she’ll find a welcoming community in Oconee County that is dedicated and loyal in its support of higher education,” Oates said.

Moore has a Doctor of Education degree in higher education leadership and policy from Vanderbilt University, a Master of Education degree in curriculum and instruction from the University of Virginia, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from the University of Virginia. She has served as president of the Board of Directors of the Tennessee Association of Independent Colleges and Schools. She is currently a member of the Rotary Club of Oconee County and of the Oconee County Chamber of Commerce Leadership Oconee XXII class.
