Karen Miller selected as executive vice president of Access, Learning and Success
Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) today announced that Karen Miller will become the College’s provost and chief academic officer after being named executive vice president of Access, Learning and Success.
She had served in the role on an interim basis since August.
“I am delighted that we have an internal candidate with Karen’s talent and experience to assume the duties permanently,” Tri-C President Alex Johnson said. “She has been at the forefront of the student success movement at the College.”
Miller has been part of the Tri-C leadership team since 1998 and was instrumental in developing and implementing the College’s strategic plan. In recent years, she spearheaded initiatives that raised the College’s graduation rates to historic highs.
Past positions at the College include vice president of institutional research and enrollment management and dean of student affairs at Metropolitan Campus in Cleveland.
Miller has presented at numerous academic conferences and held board positions with the Ohio Articulation and Transfer Network and the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers.
Prior to coming to Tri-C, Miller worked at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland and DeVry Institute of Technology in Columbus in various roles within student affairs.
Miller earned her doctorate in higher education from The University of Toledo. She also holds a master’s degree with a specialization in guidance and counseling from The University of Akron, where she also earned her bachelor’s degree.
She replaces Craig Foltin, who left the College in August for a graduate faculty professorship at Cleveland State University.
