Jerome Miller
Regents' Proceedings

Jerome Miller, Ph.D., lecturer IV in psychology in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts, retired from active faculty status on May 31, 2022.

Dr. Miller received his B.A. (1968) degree from the University of Illinois, and his M.S. (1973) and Ph.D. (1975) degrees from the University of Michigan in clinical psychology. Dr. Miller joined the University of Michigan faculty in 1973, was appointed adjunct lecturer in the Department of Psychology in 1975, adjunct assistant professor in 1992, adjunct associate professor in 1994, lecturer III in 2011, and promoted to lecturer IV in 2014.

Dr. Miller has been an invaluable instructor and liaison between the university and the broader community through his work as a clinical psychologist at the Washtenaw County Community Mental Health Center (1974-1988) and at the University Center for the Child and Family, where he also served as director from 1994 to 2010. As a mental health consultant for a variety of community agencies he established a range of impactful community service opportunities for psychology undergraduates. Dr. Miller’s especially unique contribution has been to enrich education by integrating classroom and community learning in such courses as developmental disturbances of childhood, psychology of marriage and the family, community psychology and the department’s service learning course, Project Outreach. As faculty director of Project Outreach from 1989 until 2022, Dr. Miller developed an award-winning and innovative course that enables students to learn the relevance of psychological theories in applied settings. As the longest running course of its kind in the country, Project Outreach has been among the most popular courses in psychology enrolling over 600 students annually, making it the largest community based learning course nationwide. In addition to expert consultation with the Ginsburg Center, APA, and other service learning initiatives, Dr. Miller has provided life-changing learning experiences for undergraduates and for the graduate student instructors he mentored, an enduring and valued legacy for the Department of Psychology and the university.

The Regents now salute this distinguished scholar by naming Jerome Miller, lecturer IV emeritus in psychology.
