Jamel Miller

Research Associate - Qualitative Specialist

Dr. Jamel Miller graduated from Purdue University with a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction, Augusta State University with a M.Ed. in Counselor Education, and the University of South Carolina at Aiken with a B.A. degree in Political Science. Dr. Miller works in two professional roles. He is a Certified Professional School Counselor and teaches part-time as an Assistant Professor of Curriculum and Instruction at Kennesaw State University. He previously taught courses at Augusta University. His research agenda includes investigating the racialized and gendered experiences of Black male students in K–12 and higher education. In education and the field of counseling, he grounds his work in Anti-deficit male achievement (ADMA) theory, which entails highlighting the academic and societal accomplishments and contributions of Black males despite negative stereotypes and stigmas. Dr. Miller wholeheartedly believes that in light of the anti-Black and misandric experiences of Black males in education and society, it is critical for scholars to employ lenses that critically scrutinize America’s anti-Blackness by using anti-deficit lenses to reveal the positive contributions and accomplishments of Black men in the United States.
