Kim Mosby

Kim Mosby, senior associate dean in the Division of Student Life, will retire June 30 after more than 40 years of developing programs and launching initiatives to engage, support and enrich the lives of WVU students. 

Members of the WVU community are invited to a reception honoring Mosby Wednesday, June 22, in Elizabeth Moore Hall beginning at 4 p.m.

“It’s hard to believe it’s been 40 years. I’ve been very blessed to have worked with so many amazing staff and students,” Mosby said. “I’m looking forward to retirement and am happy that many of my colleagues are now my friends.”

Mosby began her career in the Division of Student Life in 1989, and counts among her mentors Deans Betty Boyd, Herman Moses, Geraldine Belmear and Thomas Sloane. Currently, she oversees Campus and Community Life, is the Student Advocate, CareTeam Chair and administers the Betty Boyd Loan Fund and the Kenneth and Carolyn Gray Emergency Grant Fund. During her tenure, she has overseen Off-Campus Housing, Commuter Freshman Programs, Non-Traditional Student Programs, Judicial Programs and Crisis Response.

“Kim’s commitment to improving the student experience at WVU is an outstanding example of the influence a student life professional has on an institution,” said Dean of Students Corey Farris. “We encourage the many individuals she has worked with over the years to join us in celebrating her retirement.”
