Faculty in Action: Brett McMillan

Dr. Brett McMillan came to Bryn Mawr five years ago, after teaching for several years at the college level. He was immediately impressed by the curiosity and engagement that Bryn Mawr girls brought to the classroom. As a teacher of biology and AP Environmental Science, Dr. McMillan is passionate about the environment and is always looking for ways to introduce topics in a way that students can immediately relate to the world around them.

On Founders Day this month, he was awarded the Julia Clayton Baker Chair in Environmental Stewardship. This endowed chair was created by Mayer Martin Baker, a former member of the Board of Trustees and parent of Alden Baker ’06, with the strong support of William C. Baker. It is intended to afford Bryn Mawr the opportunity to recruit and retain an outstanding teacher and provide a unique level of support for this teacher’s specialized professional development. The holder of the Baker Chair also serves as a leader for students, faculty and the larger Bryn Mawr community with respect to the integration of issues related to environmental stewardship into all aspects of campus and community life. Dr. McMillan will hold the chair for three years.
