Mark Miller is associate professor of systematic (philosophical) theology.  His mother came from the Philippines, his father from Maine, and they met in the middle as students at USF in the 1960s.  His specialty is human development and redemption, particularly our ongoing, communal conversion to greater knowledge, love, and service of God and all things.  His PhD dissertation is entitled, "Why the Passion?: Bernard Lonergan on the Cross as Communication." His undergraduate degree concentrated on Humanities in International Affairs.

Professor Miller has taught at Ateneo de Zamboanga, University of Asia and the Pacific, Boston College, Georgetown University, Santa Clara, and Seton Hall (as inaugural Toth/Lonergan Endowed Visiting Chair), as well as at Mt.
