David Miller

Director, Princeton Faith & Work Initiative, Senior Professional Specialist, Lecturer, Princeton University


David W. Miller, Ph.D. David brings an unusual “bilingual” perspective to the classroom and the boardroom. He is on the faculty of Princeton University, serving as the Director of the Faith & Work Initiative (FWI), a Senior Professional Specialist, and a Lecturer. FWI is housed in the Keller Center for Innovation, located in Princeton’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Before receiving his Ph.D. in ethics and joining the faculty at Princeton University in 2008, he was on the faculty at Yale Divinity school and Yale School of Management for five years. Prior to academia, he spent 16 years in senior executive positions in international business and finance, including eight years in London. At Princeton the nickname of his signature course is “Business Ethics: Succeeding without Selling Your Soul.” His research interests include responsible leadership, ethics in the gray zone, restoration of trust, healing broken company cultures, gaps between personal and organizational values, and the growing demand for faith as part of corporate commitments to Diversity Equity and Inclusion. Alongside his teaching and research, he delights in mentoring his students in the classroom and beyond. In addition to his Princeton teaching and research, David also serves as an international advisor to CEOs, senior executives, and other leaders on ethics, values-based leadership, culture, trust, and faith at work. As a thought leader, many senior executives seek his counsel, and scholars, think tanks, and the media seek his views. An article in the Wall Street Journal featured his work with one global bank referring to him as their “on-call ethicist.” Harvard Business Review called David’s book, God at Work, (Oxford University Press), "most thoughtful." Outside of work, David is a patient advocate for Multiple Sclerosis research, a doting uncle, and always looking for a good game of tennis or bridge.
