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.
