USF College of Education professor recognized by national organization

Tampa, Florida — University of South Florida associate professor Thomas Miller, a faculty member in the College of Education, has been awarded the Outstanding Contribution to Student Affairs through Teaching by the Region III chapter of the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA), the leading association for the advancement, health, and sustainability of the student affairs profession.

With more than three decades of experience in student affairs in higher education, Miller has served students across the nation as both teacher and mentor and has also helped to advance the field as a researcher and student affairs professional. After joining the University of South Florida in 2001 as assistant vice president for student affairs and dean of students, Miller returned to the classroom in 2006 as associate professor focused on the College Student Affairs Master’s program.

As one of only two full-time faculty in the program, Miller has had and continues to have "significant impact on our CSA students and the knowledge base they carry into the profession," according to one letter of nomination.

Additionally, "he coordinates a summer practicum experience placing graduate students in experiential educational opportunities all throughout the country…coordinates comprehensive exams, serves on dissertation committees, and assists students in job placement after graduation."

In summary, according to the nomination, "he epitomizes the concept that teaching/learning happens everywhere and not just within the classroom."

Miller will be recognized at the association’s symposium in June and will be considered for the corresponding national NASPA award.
