Thomas Miller has been named vice president of Student Affairs after serving in the interim position since former vice president for Student Affairs Dee Siscoe left the university this summer.
Miller, who will also continue working with graduate and Ph.D. students in the College of Education, said he looks forward to working with those in Student Affairs and is looking to explore ways to support and collaborate with academic entities at the university as well.

The department, he said, is in a stable and secure position regarding funding due to the fact that most of the Office’s funding does not come from Educational and General (E&G) funds.
