More About Aaron Miller

I’m a professor of social innovation, nonprofits, and business ethics in the Marriott School of Business at Brigham Young University. I’m fascinated by how all of us can be better helpers.

My work has included advising millions of dollars in charitable giving, developing ethics tools for US Special Operations Forces, and mentoring dozens of social impact startups. With my friends Brad Agle and Bill O’Rourke, we wrote The Business Ethics Field Guide, based on five years of research into hundreds of ethical dilemmas that people face at work.

I live in Provo, Utah where my wife, Katie, and I do our best  to raise four teenage boys.
