Bringing with him more than 20 years of experience in higher education, Christopher Miller, Ph.D., was recently named associate VP for student affairs and dean of students at South Carolina's Clemson University.
Miller has been the school's interim dean of students since March.
In those capacities, Miller will be in charge of policies, budgets, facilities and personnel for Clemson's New Student and Family Programs, Fraternity and Sorority Life, Office of Community and Ethical Standards, Center for Career and Professional Development and Student Advocacy and Success.
“Chris has made great strides during his time at Clemson,” Clemson's VP of student affairs Almeda Jacks said. “Chris has a wonderful skill set combined with passion and commitment for our students. We’re looking forward to seeing him build upon his success.”
Miller holds an undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and master's and doctorate degrees from Arizona State University. He also earned a law degree from Campbell University.
Miller said spending time as interim dean was a valuable experience, as he was able to pinpoint "what works as well as challenges" among the student body.
“I’m excited and eager to turn challenges into opportunities for all Clemson students," he added.
Miller's resume includes time as VP for student affairs at Marquette University and vice chancellor for student affairs and administrative services at the University of Illinois-Springfield.
