Biography

Gary Leon Miller assumed his duties as Chancellor of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay on August 1, 2014. He brings to the position a commitment to expand community partnerships, foster student learning and champion the power of higher education to change lives.

He has described a vision of UW-Green Bay’s future in which the institution is energized by the three “Powers of the Phoenix.” The University will thrive, he says, through the power of Innovation, the power of higher education as an agent of Transformation, and the power of Place — the idea that UW-Green Bay will serve its region.

Miller came to Green Bay from the chancellorship at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. He was previously Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs and Research at Wichita State University (2006-2011) and Dean of the College of Pacific (arts and sciences) at the University of the Pacific (2002-2006).

While serving as a professor and Chair of the Biology Department at the University of Mississippi, he co-authored the widely used textbook Ecology. He was a faculty member at Weber State University and Mississippi State University. He holds a Ph.D. in Biological Sciences from Mississippi State University and Master’s and Bachelor’s Degrees in Biology from the College of William and Mary.

Immediately upon his arrival in Green Bay Miller began a campuswide planning and visioning process he calls “Invent the Future of the University.” With UW System schools facing significant reductions in state funding, he convened a special planning and budget group at UW-Green Bay to advise on every aspect of the university, “from how we’re spending money, administrative support, how we set up programs, how we are organized, to how we perform academic services… It’s all on the table.”

Other early priorities have included a concerted campaign to enhance student recruitment and enrollment; steps to upgrade the institution’s internal data-analysis capabilities; and efforts to build even stronger relationships with alumni, elected officials, community members and private donors. (Philanthropic contributions to UW-Green Bay totaled $5.7 million for calendar year 2014.)
