On September 1, 2020, Dr. Timothy Moore became Indian River State College’s fourth president.
Dr. Moore brings to the role more than three decades of experience in federal, private, and academic research and development experience, including service in higher education as Vice President for Research at Florida A&M University and Associate Vice President for Institutional Advancement and Research Program Development at Auburn University.

Dr. Moore has been the architect of a number of “firsts” during his career, including securing more than $350 million in competitive federal contract awards in the past three decades across a variety of federal agencies. He also spearheaded the largest competitive award in Auburn University history, the Equine Source Plasma Program. The endeavor produced equine-derived antibodies for use in an FDA-licensed Botulinum antitoxin vaccine, and most notably, generated more than $50 million in sales over 10 years and produced 500 new jobs for the region.
