Professor Martyn J. Miller is the assistant vice president for International Services and Cultural Activities in the Office of International Affairs, overseeing the Center for American Language and Culture, the Center for Chinese Language and Instruction, International Student Affairs (ISA), and International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS). Dr. Miller also often teaches a university seminar on Global Citizenship and has at various times supervised the offices of Global Programs and International Admissions.
An Arab-American fluent in (Levantine) Arabic and English, Miller was raised in Syria and Lebanon, so it’s not surprising that he also assists with international university partnership agreements and student recruiting in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and the Indian subcontinent.
Temple is not only a place to work for Miller, but is also a part of his family history: Both of his paternal grandparents were on the Temple faculty in the early days of the university (1915 – 1918), and both of his daughters are also graduates. So helping students come to and succeed at Temple is truly in Miller’s roots.
Like many at Temple, Miller enjoys the great food Philadelphia has to offer. His favorite campus food spot is the Teppanyaki food truck. When time permits, you will find him on long walks through Philadelphia’s treasured old residential neighborhoods.
