George Miller, president of Martin University in Indianapolis, has announced that he will step down on November 1 after just 18 months on the job. President Miller said he was leaving because he and wife had accepted another opportunity that he did not disclose.
Martin University enrolls about 700 students. African Americans make up about 94 percent of the student body. The university was established 36 years ago in 1977 and was named to honor Martin Luther King Jr.
Before becoming president of Martin University, Dr. Miller was a professor of chemistry and vice president of academic affairs at Claflin University in Orangeburg, South Carolina. He is a graduate of Delaware State University and holds a master’s degree in physical chemistry from MIT and a Ph.D. in chemistry from Howard University in Washington, D.C.
