There is an imperative for tertiary education institutions to educate their students to be global citizens.  In the past, only elite students in the USA have had the opportunities that arise from a study abroad experience.

Professor Moses has been working with the Mellon Foundation, and the Salzburg Global seminars on a project that allows underrepresented students experience global citizenship locally and globally. The project works with historically black colleges and universities, and community colleges where most poor students start their tertiary education.

Professor Moses is Professor of Anthropology and Associate Vice Chancellor for Diversity, Equity and Excellence at the University of California, Riverside.  Her research focuses on the broad question of the origins of social inequality in complex societies through the use of comparative ethnographic and survey methods.  She has explored gender and class disparities in the Caribbean, East Africa and in the United States.  More recently, her research has focused on issues of diversity and change in universities and colleges in the United States, India, Europe and South Africa. Professor Moses is currently Fulbright Distinguished Chair in Cultural Competence at the National Centre for Cultural Competence, University of Sydney, until June 2017.
