David Moseley, senior vice president for administration and finance at Arkansas Tech University, has announced he will retire as of June 30, 2016.
Moseley has served as the chief financial officer at Arkansas Tech since 1994. He has provided leadership for more than $260 million in campus infrastructure improvements and oversight for such operating areas as the university bookstore, the budget office, the office of the controller, financial aid, food services, human resources, payroll, procurement and risk management, facilities management and student accounts.
“David Moseley’s wise stewardship of our financial resources has permitted the university to grow and flourish,” said Dr. Robin E. Bowen, Arkansas Tech president. “As a result, we have dramatically improved our academic facilities, residence halls, dining facilities and services for our students during his tenure. We would not be an institution with more than 12,000 students and the most beautiful campuses in Arkansas without the efforts of Mr. Moseley and the many talented and dedicated staff members that he has led. We will miss him greatly, and we wish him the very best in retirement.”
Moseley attended what is now known as the University of Arkansas-Monticello, putting himself through school by obtaining the W.P. Sturgis Foundation scholarship, raising cotton and driving the county bookmobile. He also worked two summers for the Potlatch Corporation.
He earned his baccalaureate degree in 1964 and later added a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Central Arkansas.
Moseley will retire from a career in service to the State of Arkansas that has spanned more than 50 years. He has served under every governor since Orval Faubus.
Prior to his appointment at Arkansas Tech, Moseley worked in finance and administration for the Arkansas Human Development Center, the Arkansas Department of Public Safety, Arkansas State Police and Arkansas State University-Beebe.
