Baylor University President Robert B. Sloan Jr. today announced the resignation of Dr. Steven G.W. Moore as the university's vice president for student life, effective July 31.

Dr. Moore, who joined the Baylor administration in fall 1998, has been named senior vice president at Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Ky. He will concurrently hold a Presidential Fellowship with the Council of Christian Colleges and Universities.

"Dr. Moore has made a tremendous contribution to our student life division through the heart he has for our students," Dr. Sloan said. "Though he will be missed at the university, Dr. Moore has done a good job of preparing new leadership in the student life division who will keep several new initiatives moving forward. We wish Dr. Moore and his family our best as he returns to his alma mater to serve in this important leadership role in Christian higher education."

Before coming to Baylor, Dr. Moore served for nine years as vice president for campus life at Seattle Pacific University. He holds a bachelor's degree from McMurry University, a master of divinity from Asbury Seminary, and a doctorate from the University of Michigan.

"It has been a privilege to serve Baylor's remarkable students alongside the outstanding faculty and staff who make Baylor such a great university," said Dr. Moore.

Dr. Eileen Hulme, assistant vice president for student life at Baylor, will assume responsibilities as acting vice president for student life, effectively immediately. Dr. Moore will assist her with the transition until the effective date of his resignation.

A 1982 Baylor graduate, Dr. Hulme served as vice president for student life and interim chief information officer at George Fox University in Newberg, Ore., prior to joining the Baylor student life staff in fall 1999. She earned her bachelor's degree in education from Baylor, where she was a member of the women's volleyball team. She earned her master's degree in social science from Azusa Pacific University in Los Angeles, and her doctorate in educational administration from the University of Texas in Austin in 1997.

As assistant vice president for student life, Dr. Hulme has played an integral part in the division's strategic planning, has supervised campus recreation, health services, wellness programs and the counseling center, and has chaired Baylor's task force on the residential life master plan. She attends Waco's Calvary Baptist Church.
