Matt Miller is a lecturer on education and associate dean for Learning and Teaching at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, where he has taught since 2006. He is faculty chair of Harvard’s Institute for Management and Leadership in Education (MLE), a leading residential institute for the professional development of higher education leaders. Miller is a co-author of An Everyone Culture (Harvard Business Review Press, 2016), an acclaimed study of organizations focused on the transformational learning of their members (known as "Deliberately Developmental Organizations").
In his decanal role at HGSE, Miller oversees the curriculum, support of faculty-and student-led initiatives for innovation in learning and teaching, and other academic priorities. He teaches an innovative core course on the application of developmental psychology and the learning sciences to education and a field-based course on evidence-based improvement processes in higher education. He is principal investigator on a grant from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to develop new approaches to personalized learning in foundational graduate education. With faculty colleagues at Harvard, he is also leading a project funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation on powerful approaches to capacity development to enable higher-education institutions to focus intensively and systemically on student success. President Drew Gilpin Faust named him an inaugural "Harvard Hero."
Miller received his Ed.D. from Harvard, where he was awarded a Spencer Research Training Grant Fellowship, and his B.A. from Yale, where he was named by the faculty as the outstanding student in English in his class.
