Gary L. Miller, chancellor of the University of North Carolina Wilmington, has been appointed to the American Association of State Colleges and Universities’ Committee on Economic and Workforce Development. As one of the 25 presidents and chancellors in this group, Miller will help member institutions enhance their scope of economic and workforce development.
“Economic and workforce development is critical to the future economic viability and success of our communities, our states and our nation. Universities should be the catalyst for future economic development, leading the way through innovative ideas and community partnerships,” Miller said in a press release.
He will serve a three-year term beginning this month. Miller became UNC Wilmington’s chancellor in July. He was previously provost and vice president of academic affairs at Wichita State University.
American Association of State Colleges and Universities is a Washington-based higher education association of about 420 American public colleges, universities and systems. Presidents and chancellors are the designated institutional representatives to the association.
