In addition to his leadership at Gammon/ITC, Mosley serves the larger religious and academic community in a number of capacities, including as secretary of the Association of United Methodist Theological Schools, member of the Black Religious Scholars Group of the American Academy of Religion, and as a member of the National Board of Governors of the Yale Black Alumni Association. 

Prior to Gammon/ITC, Mosley served as the university chaplain and director of the Community Service Center of The Johns Hopkins University. His service to the larger Hopkins community included being a member of the University Retention Task Force, the Undergraduate Affairs Council, and vice chair of the Black Faculty and Staff Association. Additionally, he initiated and led a university-wide conversation series on race (Race Matters) and reinvigorated the university's Muslim-Jewish dialogue.

Before going to Hopkins, Mosley served as assistant, and later, interim director of the Center for Civic Engagement at Drexel University (Philadelphia, PA), where among many responsibilities he directed the Freshman Experience program (UNIV101).  During his time at the Center for Civic Engagement, Drexel received recognition from the Corporation for National and Community Service, and special classification from the Carnegie Foundation in Curricular Engagement & Outreach and Partnerships.

Mosley's previous appointments have included being chaplain and director of multi-faith studies at Albright College in Reading, PA, and assistant dean/director of religious life at Duke University.

Moseley and his wife have four children. His scholarly interests include the resilience and persistence of African-American males in post-secondary settings, and also the contributions of church-related HBCUs to the African-American community and beyond.
