Vanessa Miller

Biography

A graduate of Wayne State University, Vanessa Miller comes to the Mike Ilitch School of Business from the Detroit Historical Society, where she managed their signature fundraising events, as well as the commemorative activities surrounding the opening of their million-dollar exhibition and project Detroit 1967, the largest and most complex endeavor ever undertaken by the society with over 100 community partners.

Prior to the Detroit Historical Society, Miller spent 10 years at the College of Creative Studies with a team that raised over $7 million for scholarships and free art programs for Detroit youth. In addition, she developed an institution-wide volunteer engagement program, worked closely with Alumni Relations, and participated in the committee that prepared a successful argument for reaccreditation to the Higher Learning Commission.
