Barb Miller grew up on the Stockbridge-Munsee Reservation and is an enrolled member of the Mohican Nation. Miller has committed her professional career to equity, diversity and inclusivity with 15 years of experience at two University of Wisconsin institutions where she worked to elevate recruitment, retention and graduation of "students of promise" (some label "at risk" or "disadvantaged") by serving as a counselor, advisor, recruitment specialist and American Indian Student Service Coordinator. Miller maintains great pride in returning to serve at her alma mater in 2010. She earned both her Bachelor's and Master's degrees from UW-Stout and believes the applied learning, unique majors and 97% of students employed or continuing education after graduation provides significant opportunities that strengthen individuals and communities. Barb is pleased that the total enrollment of Asian, Black, Native and Latino students has increased by 30% and the number of underrepresented minority graduates has increased by 35% since 2010.
