George A. Miller Visiting Professors and Scholars Program

George A. Miller Visiting Professors and Scholars are women and men of outstanding achievement in academic or public life who join our campus to participate in scholarly, professional or creative programs. These visitors might teach a special course, participate in ongoing or self-initiated research activities, interact informally with students and faculty, or take part in interdisciplinary seminars. Residencies may be for as long as a semester or an entire academic year; however, in view of the crowded schedules of many visitors, they are often arranged for shorter periods.
