Sara Moore is Chair and Associate Professor of Sociology at Salem State University. With a background in public sociology, Moore encourages her students to collaborate with community partners beyond the university to identify and examine social inequalities and create meaningful social change. In valuing multiple forms of local and expert knowledge, Moore’s approach builds bridges between universities, community organizations, and community members. Moore has worked with students and communities on issues like civic engagement, health equity, education, and food justice.
Moore is a member of several councils and committees in Salem, including the Food Policy Council and the Board of Health. She also serves on the Board of Directors for both the Salem Education Foundation and Voices Against Injustice. In 2020, she was named to Diverse magazine's list of 35 Outstanding Women in Higher Education. In 2022, she was inducted into Salem State's Civic Engagement Hall of Fame. Moore earned a B.S. in sociology from Shepherd University, an M.A. in sociology from The New School, and a Ph.D. in sociology from George Mason University.
