About Michael Mooradian Lupro

Dr. Lupro generally prefers to quote movies or pop songs over writing about himself in the third person. I like to get things started: a founding member of AmeriCorps, the first cohort of UNST mentors, building a UNST program at North Carolina A&T. After 7 years coordinating the Senior Inquiry Program, I'm now Director of Sophomore Inquiry and Junior Clusters. My research interests range from space to pedagogy and my most recent publications are on David Bowie, Interdisciplinary Teaching of CyberSecurity, and Weird Al Yankovic.
