Revitalizing Catholic schools in Chicago

Will Miller ’14

Consultant, Bain & Company



Leveraging both his faith and professional expertise, Miller has focused on solving problems in the non-profit sector.

As a Bain Consulting extern for the Office of Catholic Schools in Chicago, Miller helped lead the creation of a five-year strategic plan for the Archdiocese’s approximately 175 Catholic elementary schools, which serve some 55,000 students. He worked with school leaders and Cardinal Blase Cupich to develop and publish a turnaround plan for the school system, developing approximately 40 initiatives to improve schools while identifying millions in incremental revenue to help pay for the plan.

Miller has also used his consulting expertise to assist on major projects for Habitat for Humanity and the Boys and Girls Clubs. While pursuing two graduate degrees at Stanford, he helped lead both the Catholic Student Association and Christians in Business, successfully bringing both groups together to strengthen the Stanford faith community. His deep faith and his impressive skills as a consultant have allowed him to make a significant impact in service to the Church.
