Paul Moda is Director of Student Leadership and Engagement at Bunker Hill Community College (BHCC), the largest and most diverse community college in Massachusetts. BHCC enrolls more than 13,000 students from 100 countries and 75 languages are spoken on campus on a daily basis. He is originally from Central NY, and graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Elmira College with a B.S. in Psychology and an emphasis in Management. His experience as a student was so powerful that he decided to pursue Student Development as a career. From 1990-1994, he served as Assistant Director of Student Activities at Merrimack College in North Andover, MA.
Moda came to BHCC in the Fall of 1994 as Activities Advisor. He was promoted to Assistant Coordinator of Student Activities in 1996, Coordinator of Student Activities in 2002, and named Director of Student Leadership and Engagement in 2015. His work at BHCC focuses on utilizing the arts to explore individual and cultural identity and creating experiences for students that celebrate diversity and promote community. Moda believes that what we are told is ephemeral, but what we experience is visceral--that our individual stories and lived experiences are the richest teachers we have. He teaches his students that through exploring our personal stories, and deconstructing our myths and legends, we can find our identity and our strength and use this as a catalyst for transformation.
In 2016, Moda began teaching a Learning Community (First Year) Seminar based on THE POWER OF THE HEART, which has become the primary source through which he teaches students how to find their purpose, live their passion and become heart-centered leaders. He was awarded the Massachusetts Citation for Outstanding Performance in 2013 and 2015 for his work in cultivating an environment that transforms the quality of the student experience and community life on campus.
