The Kansas State University IGP Institute has a new administrative leader. Brandi Miller is serving as the interim associate director of the institute. Ms Miller was formerly the institute’s assistant director and distance education program coordinator. 

“Under Brandi’s leadership the distance education program has grown significantly. We are excited to have Brandi’s innovative ideas and outstanding leadership guiding the programming and team at the IGP Institute,” says Gordon Smith, IGP Institute director and grain science and industry department head.

Ms Miller joined the institute in January of 2010. Since she began, the distance education offering has grown from 9 courses in 2010 to 34 in 2015. She was promoted to assistant director in September 2014 to assume some of the administrative duties of a growing IGP Institute program.

She holds a bachelor’s degree in bakery science and management and master’s degree in adult, occupational and continuing education. Both degrees were obtained at Kansas State University.

In regard to her new role, Ms Miller says, “I am excited to be stepping in as interim associate director. IGP has a strong history with internal and external stakeholders and I look forward to continue to build those relationships to strengthen our programming.”

Along with fulfilling her administrative duties, Ms Miller plans to continue her leadership of the distance education program. She assumes this new administrative position from Mark Fowler, associate director and flour milling curriculum manager, who announced his departure effective in December 2015.
The IGP Institute offers professional trainings in the areas of feed manufacturing and grain quality management, grain marketing and risk management, and grain processing and flour milling.
