The College of Professional Studies at Millikin

Where theory, practice, and reflection guide our curriculum...
Where integrated learning, collaborative learning, and engaged learning dominate our culture...
Where students, faculty, staff, and administrators are engaged and stimulated...

The faculty and staff of the College of Professional Studies are committed to delivering on the promise of education as described in the mission of the University.  We prepare students for professional success, for democratic citizenship in a global environment, and for a personal life of meaning and value.  Our students are integral, vital members of the University and the Decatur community.  They are campus and community leaders.  They are involved in service learning and outreach programs.  They take advantage of co-curricular opportunities and manage to balance their important relationships with their curricular aspirations.  We believe that the best baccalaureate graduates are those who are well-rounded --both professionally and personally.  We also believe that the Millikin University College of Professional Studies helps our students to become those graduates.
