Dorothy Eloise Miller, Assistant Dean and Professor at Harford Community College, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in higher education.
Desiring more knowledge at a time when women were only expected to learn topics like shorthand typing, Dr. Miller decided to pursue her passion for books and academia. She ended up graduating from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Science in education and a Master of Education in 1966 and 1969, respectively, during which time she also taught at Aberdeen High School and Central Dauphin East High School. Upon receiving the latter degree, Dr. Miller joined the staff of Harford Community College as a professor and assistant dean. She remains in those roles to this day, and added the title of adjunct professor at the University of Baltimore in 2001. To further her own education, she obtained an EdD from the Teachers College at Columbia University in 1991.
When Dr. Miller isn’t teaching, she is very active in her community. She has been a member of Workgroups in English through PARCC Assessment since 2011 and a member of the English Alignment Committee through the Maryland Higher Education Commission since 2002, as well as the English Composition Committee through the Maryland Higher Education Commission since 1997 and the Accreditation Team of the Middle States Commission since 1995. Previously, she held positions like owner of Ideas by Design, member of the Statewide Writing Skills Assessment Committee and the Statewide English Standards Committee through the Maryland Higher Education Commission, and chairperson of the Statewide Standards for College Education Committee, among many others. She was also a charter member of the National Museum of Women in the Arts, a member of the Modern Language Association, and the editor of “Renewing the American Community Colleges.”
As a testament to her hard work, dedication and longevity, Dr. Miller was named Woman of the Year by the National Association of Professional Women, Continental Who’s Who, and the National Association of Professional Women, and earned a National Teaching Excellence Award from NISOD. Her achievements were highlighted in numerous editions of Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in American Education, Who’s Who in the World, and Who’s Who of American Women.
Dr. Miller enjoys skiing, swimming, golf, reading, and image consulting in her free time.
