The Miller Center of Public Affairs

A University of Virginia graduate, Glynn Key has led a distinguished law career, serving under Secretary Bruce Babbitt as assistant counsel and associate solicitor in the U.S. Department of the Interior and as partner in Wilmer, Cutler, Pickering, Hale, and Dorr, LLP. Currently, Ms. Key is general counsel of GE Water and Process Technologies and on the Board of Directors at both the Thomas Jefferson Foundation and the Miller Center for Public Affairs.

Based at the University of Virginia, the Miller Center is a nonpartisan institute that seeks to spread knowledge of the presidency, public policy, and political history through elevated public discussion and in-depth discourse between Miller Center core faculty and visiting scholars. In addition to public debates, forums, and conferences, the Miller Center convenes commissions and meetings with policymakers in order to explore current events and issues of national concern. The Center also runs the only program in the country that has collected the oral histories of every president since Jimmy Carter.

Since its founding in 1975, the Miller Center has focused on finding solutions to tough political problems, garnering significant support in this pursuit from varied sources. Under the current director, Gerald L. Baliles, the Center’s combined endowment has topped $50 million.
