ATU alumnus Stan Miller and his wife, Patrice, made a $5.3 million gift to the Arkansas Tech University Foundation to support the establishment of the Miller Center for Global Engagement at ATU.

The Millers’ gift supports student scholarships for study abroad programs, world language education through ATU’s language computer labs, international faculty exchange opportunities and an international speakers series.
