Claire Moore ’67 ’02 is the person who made Stevenson home for so many students and alumni. Throughout Claire’s thirty-five year career at Stevenson, she led the University with her heart and kept her focus on students.
To celebrate Claire's lifelong commitment to building a community that fosters student growth and achievement, the Claire E. Moore Scholarship was created. The scholarship provides relief to a rising senior who has contributed to the Stevenson community – much like Claire has - and is currently at risk of leaving school due to financial hardship.
Help to support students who strengthen the community that Claire has built for Stevenson by making a gift to support the Claire E. Moore Scholarship today.

Claire’s Stevenson legacy began as an undergraduate in the legal secretarial program at Villa Julie College. As a member of the Class of 1967 and the SGA, Claire was a leader in campus life, a position she would keep and treasure for decades to come.
In 1982, Claire returned to her alma mater to serve as the Director of Student Activities. Through her leadership and collaborative spirit, she developed Stevenson’s Residence Life program from the ground up, established an athletics program, and helped to create the Wellness Center. While developing these programs she continually solicited and valued student input, and worked closely with the students to ensure that these facilities met their needs.
In 2005 Claire was promoted to Vice President for Student Affairs, where she was present for many Student Government Association meetings, diversity talks, and club sponsored events.
In 2016, President Manning announced his retirement and Claire was selected to serve as Stevenson’s Interim President. As Stevenson’s fifth President, she led the University continuing her unwavering commitment to students’ success, growth, and well-being.
Once President Hirshman was appointed, the entire student body was excited to welcome Claire back to Student Affairs, especially the 2018 Senior Class Council, who established this scholarship fund to honor her contributions to their student experience.
