Joshua Miller

Coordinator, Residence Education
Residence Life

I'm from the amazing Pacific Northwest! I was born and raised there, I attended a mixture of schools with mainstream programs and Deaf schools. I graduated from the Washington School for the Deaf in 1999 and became a Gallaudet student in Fall of the same year. 

I graduated from Gallaudet with a Bachelor's in Philosophy... in 2010. Why so long? I never settled on a major, going from major path to major path, I became a part time student for a while. Only 124 credits were required to graduate from Gallaudet, I graduated with 167 credits. 

In 2013, I entered the Masters of Social Work program at Portland State University, this time I didn't delay my graduation, I went all out and graduated in two years with a Master's degree in social work. I was the only Deaf person in the program for the first year; this was an extremely beneficial scenario because I was able to bring up the topic of audism in discussions about oppression. 

Now, here I am back at Gallaudet University working as a CRE (Coordinator of Residence Education). 

Other things about me: I enjoy biking, rock climbing, Netflix, PC games, wandering around DC in nice weather. I am a vegan, I believe that animals have the same rights to life and liberty as humans do.

Representing Residence Life, I primarily work at Clerc Hall. My responsibilities include ensuring a safe and comfortable environment for all residents that is conductive to their academic and personal needs. I maintain communication with residents and the resident assistant team on the day to day operations of Clerc Hall.
