Millie Rodríguez, M.S.Ed.



Millie is a College Counselor in the Multicultural Resource Center. She received her Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education from Penn State, a Master of Science in Education from The University of Scranton, and a post-baccalaureate certificate in Educating Individuals with Autism from Penn State. Millie taught English (Language Arts, Reading Intervention, and World Literature) for fourteen years prior to coming to Penn State in 2017. Millie is also currently a volunteer parent mentor and advocate for parents of children with special needs and a volunteer ESL teacher and tutor. Since joining Penn State, Millie has consistently been a member of or held leadership roles on DEIB committees.


Millie grew up in Queens Village, NY, and the only goal her parents had for her was to get a Regents diploma and a good public service job. Millie was an FGLI, returning adult learner while at Penn State and had no idea how to navigate higher education. While at Penn State, her MRC counselor helped her get “plugged in.” Millie joined the West Halls Association of Residence Hall Students (WHRA), University Park Allocations Committee (UPAC), Latino Caucus, and the Puerto Rican Student Association (PRSA), where she was first a member, then the secretary, and then president. Millie’s MRC counselor was instrumental to her persistence and success in college, and she now wants to give back and be a support for students while they are pursuing their college degree.
