Paige L. Moore is a Doctoral Research Fellow in the School of Public and International Affairs and Adjunct Faculty Instructor in the School of Social Work at NC State University. Her background as a research professional has focused on examining and identifying innovative solutions to social problems through research, analysis, and practice. Moore’s extensive experience in program evaluation, teaching, and research, as well as evidence-based policy writing and implementation, has allowed her to lead research projects to success while serving the needs of diverse populations. Her interdisciplinary background in social work and political science provides her with the skills needed to assess best practices at the local, state, and federal levels. Moore’s previous work has focused on how U.S. immigration policies disproportionately impact marginalized populations, the significance of cultural intelligence as a resource for effective leadership; the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on communities of color and (dis)abled populations experiencing homelessness; and the value of interprofessional teams of social workers and officers in police departments. For her work with the Raleigh Police Department writing policies, building community relationships, and developing the Addressing Crises through Outreach, Networking, and Service (ACORNS) Team, Moore received the 2020 NASW-NC President’s Award and Chief’s Citation from the Raleigh Police Department in 2021. Moore was named a 2021 ASPA Founder’s Fellow.

Moore successfully defended her dissertation Advancing Social Equity: The Administrative Burden of Police Complaints on February 15, 2024.
