Mauricio Miller

James Wei Visiting Professor, Keller Center

Mauricio Miller is currently the James Wei visiting professor at the Keller Center.  For his unorthodox strategies for social change Mauricio has been awarded the MacArthur ‘Genius’ fellowship as well as Ashoka Fellowship and other awards.  As a social entrepreneur Mauricio has devoted most of his life to creating common sense approaches to issues of poverty.  Yet despite 20 years of demonstrating a successful model, its counter-intuitive nature has stymied efforts to present and get this ground up approach recognized with a general audience.
