There are 2 comments on STH Dean Mary Elizabeth Moore Will Leave at End of Academic Year

  1. Mary Elizabeth has led major growth on the macro level, as this article attests, but so much of what she has done is at the micro level where very few will ever see. I credit her with singlehandedly enabling the completion of my doctoral work. In between flying off around the world to represent the STH, participate meaningfully within her own denomination, and pursuing her plethora of research and writing endeavors, Dean Moore took a discouraged and defeated dual degree student under her wing and enabled her to graduate—the first student ever to matriculate into BU’s D.Min./MSW program. This effort gained Dean Moore no further notariety, nor did it bring millions of dollars worth of endowment into the STH. It furthered her career in no way, whatsoever. But due to her quiet, unobserved commitment, a new entity was birthed that interweaves the best of spiritual, theological, and clinical practice on Cape Ann in the North Shore of Boston And has brought mental, emotional, and spiritual healing to many over the last eight years. Cheers to you, dear Mary Elizabeth, for your contributions, both sung and unsung, that have changed the world and made it s better place, and many of us a better people.
