Aftermath Emergency Fund
Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, we are pleased to inform you that an Aftermath Emergency Fund has been set up at the College to provide timely financial support to students facing severe financial hardship. This fund is intended to be a supplemental financial resource for students who are experiencing unexpected emergency expenses that directly impact or jeopardize continued enrollment at Moore.
Students are encouraged to apply for the emergency funds when other traditional methods of funding have been exhausted.
Examples of qualifying emergency expenses include, but are not limited to:
- Emergency food or housing assistance
- Transportation costs associated with an unexpected circumstance
- Unusual or unforeseen medical expenses
Examples of expenses not covered by the Emergency Fund include:
- Parking tickets, fines, or other preventable expenses
- Student conferences or study-abroad opportunities
- Costs associated with entertainment, recreation, or non-emergency travel
Students are eligible for emergency funding up to $500.00 per academic year and applications for funding will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. Priority will be given to students who demonstrate severe financial hardship due to an emergency or unanticipated circumstance. If you feel you fit this criteria, please complete the emergency fund request form in full here. Your application will be reviewed by key members in Student Affairs and Financial Aid and will be kept confidential.
Should you have any additional questions regarding the emergency fund, please reach out to Dr. Joshua Wilkin, Dean of Students at email@example.com.
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Access
Moore's Diversity Committee, made up of students, faculty and staff, is open to anyone who would like to join the conversation about how to make the College a more diverse, equitable and inclusive place. General meetings occur on a monthly basis, and are a great place to learn about upcoming initiatives, programming and events related to this work. In addition, a weekly Diversity Newsletter is sent to the broader Moore community with ongoing updates, resources and reminders.

Food & Utilities Insecurity
We know that every college student needs support for food and housing—and while many get that support from their parents, others may need access to additional resources. If you're experiencing food insecurity or facing financial roadblocks with regards to basic needs, you're not alone—and Moore's Student Affairs team is here to help. We have information about resources that will help you access the support you need, so that you can focus on your education and having a memorable college experience. Download a resource PDF from the Hope Center.
In addition to non-perishable food, the Resource Pantry offers personal care items, school supplies, art supplies, clothes, and printed & online resources for Moore students who are in need of assistance. The Student Affairs Office Resource Pantry is located on the first floor of Stahl Hall and is open Monday through Friday from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm, no appointment necessary. If you are interested in donating to the Resource Pantry, please visit our Amazon Wish List. We also accept in-person donations Monday through Friday from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm. In-person donations can be directly dropped off at the Resource Pantry.
