The principal research interest of Dr. Moses relates to cultural change in the United States and in the Caribbean, cultural change in higher education, and cultural diversity and public policy issues. As a consultant for the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U), she produced the important monograph, "Black Women in Academe", and she was a member of the Association's national panel on liberal learning that resulted in two significant publications. Under Dr. Moses' leadership, CCNY played a leading role in launching a national higher education diversity initiative, in cooperation with the AAC&U, entitled "Racial Legacies and Learning: An American Dialogue." The project brought together a coalition of leaders from education, business, politics, the religious community, and grassroots organizations to discuss building "One America" in support of President Clinton's Initiative on Race.
