About Florida State University DeVoe L. Moore Center

The DeVoe L. Moore Center at Florida State University is an interdisciplinary unit in the College of Social Sciences and Public Policy that is dedicated to increasing knowledge and understanding about the role of government in a market economy. The Center emphasizes the study of how government rules, regulations and programs affect the economy and individuals. Bringing the insights of economics, planning, political science, and public administration to the study of state and local regulations is a major focus of the Center’s efforts.

Scholarly research of the Center’s faculty and graduate students generates knowledge that is integrated into innovative undergraduate and graduate teaching and shared with the wider academic community. The Center also conducts outreach activities to inform elected officials and the general public about our research findings.

The Center was founded in 1998 as the result of a gift from DeVoe L. Moore, an entrepreneur and benefactor committed to free enterprise.

“I loved the flexible yet professional environment fostered by the DeVoe L. Moore Center. As their Web Desginer Intern, I was given generous creative freedoms that strengthened my design skills. The opportunity served as excellent practice for the professional technical design field. My colleagues, fellow interns, and supervisors were superb motivators and mentors. This was the greatest internship experience I have had.”
