Miller chosen as BRCC chancellor
Andrea Lewis Miller was chosen today to lead the Baton Rouge Community College by the Louisiana Community and Technical College System Board of Supervisors. Miller has served as the chancellor of Sowela Technical Community College in Lake Charles since 2006. Miller succeeds Myrtle E.B. Dorsey as chancellor. Dorsey accepted a leadership post at St. Louis Community College earlier this year, and had led the institution from 2002 through June. Jim Horton has served as interim chancellor since Dorsey's departure. "I am honored to be selected to lead BRCC into a new era of excellence," says Miller in a prepared statement. "I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with a dedicated faculty and staff helping BRCC students achieve their academic goals and prepare for entrance into the workforce."
Miller has more than 20 years of experience in higher education. During her time at Sowela, she has managed the complete transformation of the college's organizational structure from a technical college to reflect a comprehensive community college. She has also led the increase of Sowela's enrollment from 1,617 to 3,060 students over a four-year period, and has secured $3 million in private donations, grants and contracts for the college. Prior to serving at Sowela, Miller was provost/executive vice president for academic affairs, administration and planning at Southwest Tennessee Community College. Miller earned her doctorate and master's degree in cell and developmental biology from Atlanta University, and received a postdoctoral fellowship from the Department of Anatomy at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. The LCTCS board also today selected Natalie Harder as the new chancellor of South Louisiana Community College in Lafayette.
