Emily Miller-Gonzalez was appointed as acting chief of staff to the president in September. She concurrently serves as the director of planned giving within the Division of University Advancement. In her role as chief of staff, she manages special projects on behalf of the President’s Office, developing strategic presidential communications, and representing the President’s Office to internal and external constituencies.
During her four-year tenure at Monmouth, Miller-Gonzalez has closed over $5 million in gifts and pledges, and over the past two years, has helped to welcome more than 20 new members to the Shadow Lawn Society, Monmouth’s recognition circle for donors who have included the University in their estate plan. In her previous role as the director of development for the School of Education and School of Social Work, Miller-Gonzalez aided in growing the dean’s advisory council for each school, and ultimately, helped to identify new members of the Board of Trustees. She also secured a six-figure seed gift that launched the SRF Suicide Prevention Research and Training Project, as well as a gift that permanently endowed the Virginia A. Cory Community Garden.
Miller-Gonzalez earned her Juris Doctor and Master of Social Work from Rutgers University, and her Bachelor of Arts, magna cum laude, from Georgetown University, where she also played on the women’s soccer team.
