Carol Moore is the 13th President of Lyndon State College. She grew up in Kearney, New Jersey. After graduating from high school, she went on to study science at Montclair State College (now Montclair State University) in Montclair, NJ, graduating in 1967 with a B.A. in Biology and a minor in Physical Science. From 1967-1971, Moore taught high school science and, in 1972, received a M.A. in Biology, with a concentration in Marine Biology also from Montclair State. From there, she became a college professor of biology at Massasoit Community College in Brockton, Massachusetts. After achieving the level of Ph.D. in Marine Biology at Northeastern University in 1981, Dr. Moore later rose through the college ranks in various academic leadership roles.

Dr. Moore served as Assistant Dean of Academic Affairs from 1983-1984 at Massasoit Community College before becoming the Dean of Academic Affairs at Lasell College in Newton, Massachusetts from 1984-1988.
