Director of Belonging for the Office of Religious & Spiritual Life, University of Southern California
Cat Moore is the Director of Belonging at USC.
Cat sparks micro-movements of belonging that disrupt loneliness. She is a belonging innovator across industries, who hosts the talk show Cat Chat and writes the recurring column, The Belonging Frontier. At USC, she designed and led the “CLICK! Friendship Course,” now available across U.S. campuses, and has launched the professional course “Create a Culture of Belonging” with USC’s new learning platform, Skill Up. Having spent the first 25 years of her life chronically lonely–including as an undergrad at USC–, she finally discovered through motherhood and community-building in the cafes of LA how to connect meaningfully with people from every walk of life and help them do the same.
She teaches classes for students on making meaningful relationships at USC through ORSL’s Campfires program. She’s a philosopher and community-maker who works as a relationship-enhancement consultant with large organizations such as the Los Angeles Unified School District and the Presbyterian Church. She is a 2005 Philosophy graduate of USC.
