Harriet L. Miller began her career teaching Christian education at United Theological Seminary in 1956
when she became the first woman on the faculty. A native of Minnesota, she taught in the public school system and served as director of Christian education in local church, conference and in city and state councils of churches before coming to United. Her doctoral work at The Ohio State University resulted in a dissertation entitled Preparation for Teaching Religion in Public Schools and a Ph.D. in 1966. She was a pioneer for equality for women, long before the women’s movement.
“I believe education happens best in dialogue and encounter. There is time for exchange of ideas and listening reflectively concerning a common experience in the world.” Dr. Harriet L. Miller
