Head of Indiana’s Only Black College to Resign


by Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS — The president of Indiana’s only predominantly Black college is resigning.

Martin University announced Friday that George Miller plans to resign as president of the college on the east side of Indianapolis this fall.

The private school primarily serves low-income, minority students and has an enrollment of less than 1,000. Founded in 1977, it was named for Dr. Martin Luther King.

Miller was born in Portland, Ind. and has a master’s degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a doctorate from Howard University.

He has also worked as an astrophysicist at the NASA Goddard Space Center.

Miller’s last day as president at Martin will be Nov. 1.
