Moffatt served for nearly ten years as a regular lecturer at the FBI Academy, a profiler with the Atlanta Cold Case Squad, and consultant to numerous airlines, businesses and schools.

“Dr. Moffatt’s appointment to the Georgia Composite Board is a great honor and a fitting recognition of his service and professional expertise,” said Dr. Stephen Waers, chief academic officer. “Point University is grateful to have such a well-respected leader as the dean of the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences.”

“I’m honored to have been selected by Governor Kemp to serve on the composite board, but even more so, I’m honored by the shower of support and encouragement I’ve received from my clinical colleagues in the field,” said Moffatt. “That means as much to me as recognition from the governor.”
