The former president of Virginia State University and Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Keith Miller earned his PhD from the University of Arizona and possesses nearly 30 years of university experience, including teaching and serving as dean. During Dr. Keith Miller’s four-year tenure at Virginia State, the university was named to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.
Established in 2006, the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll recognizes the efforts of colleges and universities to improve their communities and produce civic-minded graduates. The honor roll chooses institutions in four categories:
1. General community service, for institutions committed to assisting low-income, noncampus residents in areas such as health, environment, or families of military personnel.
2. Interfaith community service, for institutions striving to build and maintain relationships between those in the community with different beliefs or backgrounds.
3. Economic opportunity, for institutions working within their communities to foster economic independence, good family dynamics, and sustainability.
4. Education, for institutions who focus their community service efforts on children and adolescents, preparing them for future education and improving school programs or graduation rates.
