About Will

DSC_2360.JPG

Seasoned, passionate higher education professional looking to make a national impact. Former senior administrator at a Top Regional College in the United States. Established political scientist with multiple books, chapters, and articles. Top-rated instructor. Experienced with all facets of assessment, analytics, and accreditation.

Whether analyzing public opinion data from central Asian nations for the U.S. Department of State or assessing the role of the Tea Party in recent U.S. elections, Will Miller, an unabashed data wonk, indulges his fascination for analytics and political science. As Assistant Vice President, Campus Adoption, he leverages data best practices to help campuses make strategic decisions. As a teacher, he draws on his perspective as a public intellectual to engage students in courses on political science, public policy, program evaluation, and organizational behavior.

A recognized thought leader in student success and institutional effectiveness, Will integrates his experiences as a tenured faculty member, director of institutional research, and strategic enrollment management advisor into a comprehensive view of data flow on campus. Bringing together research on behavioral economics, organizational behavior, and political psychology, he bridges the gap between theoretical and applied in his efforts to help institutions increase their effectiveness and their students’ success. Through integrated data and information flows, Will aims to assist institutions in breaking down data silos and creating healthy analytics cultures.

Will joined the Campus Labs team in late 2016, after serving for four years as both a faculty member and senior administrator at Flagler College in Florida. There, as Executive Director of Institutional Analytics, Effectiveness, and Planning, he helped transform the campus-wide outcomes assessment process. He also served as the college’s Accreditation Liaison to the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACSCOC). Before joining Flagler, he held faculty positions at Southeast Missouri State University, Notre Dame College, and Ohio University.

Will was exactly what we needed and wanted in a facilitator. He quickly determined our needs and campus culture, and he honestly felt like a member of the family by the end of his second visit.
