Biographical Information

My name is David Moon. I am currently Professor of Political Science in the School of Public Affairs and Special Assistant to the Provost at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs. I have been at UCCS for 25 years, including five years as department chair and 20 in campus academic administration (having recently stepped down as Senior Associate Vice Chancellor for Undergraduate Education and Academic Planning). My administrative career has spanned nearly all of the areas in academic affairs. I completed my doctoral studies at the University of Texas at Austin and was on the faculty of the University of Miami before coming to UCCS. My research has focused on voting and elections, public opinion, representation and social capital.
