Dr. Miller comes to Ashland from Purdue University, Calumet, and brings a wealth of experience in grants administration and the securing of external funds. He will be on campus on a part-time basis until assuming the position full time on July 1.

During the remaining weeks of the spring semester, Dr. Miller will be working to establish an indirect cost agreement for the University, preparing a needs assessment instrument for faculty and administrators, and beginning the process of designing the policies and procedures of grants administration for the University.
