Jack Miller’s life will be celebrated Thursday

Jack Miller left an indelible mark on Brock University. His life and legacy will be celebrated Thursday, June 2 at 2 p.m. at Pond Inlet.

Miller served Brock for nearly 50 years in many capacities from scholar and teacher to planner. His input helped shape the University as we know it. There is not a project built during Miller’s time that doesn’t have his fingerprints on it.

Miller served under every president in the University’s history. Having arrived in 1966, just 24 months after Brock opened, Miller — an inorganic chemist who held dual PhDs — began as an assistant professor in Chemistry.

Over the decades, his combination of research knowledge, planning skills and organizational vision would take him beyond the lab, especially as the University’s growth created the need for someone to maximize effective use of teaching and research space created by new buildings and expansion projects.

In 2004 he became Special Advisor on Buildings and Space, and was still performing that role on a part-time basis when he died in April.

His lasting legacy won’t be forgotten.

Complimentary parking will be available in Lot A.
