Headshot of Angie Miller

Angie L. Miller serves as a consultant for SNAAP. Given her previous direct experience with the SNAAP data collection and institutional reporting processes, Dr. Miller will provide valuable support during the upcoming fall 2022 survey administration.

Dr. Miller is an Associate Research Scientist at the Indiana University Center for Postsecondary Research (IUCPR) where she currently works on the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE). Previously, Dr. Miller was a key staff member for the Strategic National Arts Alumni Project (SNAAP) when it was housed at IUCPR. She was responsible for coordinating all aspects of cleaning the data set and institutional reporting from 2009 to 2018, and currently serves as the PI on the existing Indiana University SNAAP IRB protocol (status: data analysis only). During SNAAP’s transition to its new shared home at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and the University of Texas Austin, Dr. Miller has assisted with this transition through continued aid for previous institutional clients, review of ongoing research activities, coordination of the Research Fellowships and Affiliates program, and serving in an advisory role for the Board of Directors. Dr. Miller also maintains an active research agenda, with scholarly work published in outlets such as the Creativity Research Journal, Journal of Advanced Academics, and Research in Higher Education. Her 13 years of experience with research and data analysis for NSSE and SNAAP, specifically focusing on development, data cleaning, and reporting provide a level of expertise that will be essential to the proposed work.

During my time with SNAAP, it has been incredibly rewarding to help participating institutions better understand the experiences of their alumni and make improvements for the future. Although it can be challenging to collect and interpret alumni data, my close work with the first decade of SNAAP data reinforces the need for alumni to tell their stories about the impact of arts education, and for us to appreciate their pathways to success.”
