Phil Miller photoRosemont College welcomes Dr. Phil Miller as our new Director of Athletics effective May 9.  

Originally from Philadelphia, Miller brings a resume of experience in college athletics spanning the Division I, Division II, and Division III levels. He comes to Rosemont after serving as the Associate Director of Athletics and Recreation at UC Santa Cruz, where he was a member of the senior staff and was responsible for overseeing facilities, maintenance, and project management.

 

“What brought me to Rosemont was my identity and purpose fit so well with the college mission,” said Miller. “I think Rosemont is a special place and provides an opportunity to do work that truly makes an impact in our student’s lives. The most exciting part of my new role in athletics is the chance to craft a new vision for Rosemont College that enhances the experiences we give our students.”  

 

Prior to UC Santa Cruz, Miller worked in Longwood University’s athletics department external unit as the Assistant Athletics Director for Facilities & Event Management, where he oversaw the operations of the Lancers' athletics facilities, game operations. He has also held leadership positions at East Stroudsburg University and Bucknell University.   

A 2010 graduate of Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, with a BS in Health and Physical Education, Miller also has master's degrees from Indiana University of Pennsylvania (M.S. in Sports Management) and Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania (M.S. in Criminology), and a doctorate from East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania (Ed.D. in Educational Leadership & Administration). 

“During the candidate selection process, what stood out for Dr. Miller is how much he knew about Rosemont, the questions he asked about where we are going as an institution, and how deeply he embodied the values and the mission of the College,” said Mika Nash, EdD, Provost and Senior Vice President for Student and Academic Affairs. “Dr. Miller’s ability to identify potential areas of concern and begin problem-solving with optimism and creativity is ultimately what was most impressive because that is the essence of our strength as an institution.” 

Dr. Nash also acknowledged the many contributions of Bob Hughes and Rosemont’s coaches during the selection process.  

“We want to thank Bob Hughes for serving as Interim Athletic Director and for his commitment to supporting our students and coaches during the last year,” said Dr. Nash. “As one of our longest-serving athletic staff members, he remains an integral part of Rosemont’s future. Finally, a thank you to our student athletes and our coaches, who have been supportive and patient throughout the past year, committed to the Rosemont mission and values and to bringing their best each day to their teams.”
