Professor Miller Wins Advising and Mentoring Award!
May 10, 2017
Please join our department in congratulating Professor Joanne Miller as a recipient of a 2017 Outstanding Advising and Mentoring Award! The Council of Graduate Students (COGS) solicited nominations from students system-wide and received more than forty responses, from which eight winners were chosen.
At the awards ceremony and celebration last week the following comments were made concerning Dr. Miller's work with our graduate students:
"Dr. Miller has helped me through the hoops of graduate life. She has been understanding while also pushing me to be my very best. One of the things that most amazes me about Dr. Miller is her honest interest and investment in her advisees. She truly cares about us, both in a sense of mental health and our academic health. She makes sure that we are prepared for conferences, that we are well on track in terms of academic success and that we are well-rounded scholars, but also that we have some balance with our physical and mental health."
Professor Miller is an Associate Professor in our department. She teaches courses on research design,, quantitative methods, survey methods, political psychology, political propaganda, and belief in misinformation and conspiracy theories. Professor Miller's research on conspiracy theories has been featured in The Washington Post, the Huffington Post, Vox, The Atlantic, Salon, NPR, and more!
