Please help Sponsored Projects Administration bid our Director, Dr. Justin Miller, a fond farewell. After 13.5 years of service to SPA and to Ball State, Justin has accepted a position with the New College of Florida to be their Director of the Office of Research Programs & Services.

Justin served in a number of roles at the University. First, as a Proposal Manager, facilitating several successful proposals, including the Geothermal Project submissions. In 2012, he was promoted to the role of Director in the Sponsored Programs Office. In this role, he enabled streamlining of the research administration enterprise at Ball State, by combining Sponsored Programs (pre-award) and Contracts and Grants (post-award) in 2015. During his tenure, Justin was a Fulbright Scholar representative, a grantsmanship lecturer in Teachers College, a sustainability expert, and a funding specialist for Ball State’s Council on the Environment.

SPA is grateful for the leadership Justin has provided to Ball State and the Research enterprise. We wish him all the best in this new opportunity and chapter in his career!
