Signature Programs 

Conversation on Race
For the past 3 years, Millikin University, in conjunction with Richland Community College and  Decatur Public School District 61 has provided a two-part series addressing race relations in the Decatur community. These events take place in the spring semester and are free and open to the public. For more information please contact Quantrell Willis, Assistant Dean of Inclusion and Student Engagement at qwillis@millikin.edu.


Food for Thought
Series
This lunch hour series provides participants to explore different multicultural topics. Topics have ranged from male engagement to exploring poverty in the community. If you are interested in presenting or would like to learn more about this series please contact Alicia Gilbert, Associate Director of Inclusion and Student Engagement at agilbert@millikin.edu.


MLK Vigil
At the start of the spring semester, the Office of Inclusion and Student Engagement provides a time to reflect on the leadership and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. The evening starts at Pilling Chapel with a candlelight walk to Richards Treat University Center. During the second part of the vigil faculty, staff, and students talk about the impact that Martin Luther King Jr. made on society as well as individually. For more information please contact Molly Berry at mberry@millikin.edu.


Tunnel of Oppression
The Tunnel of Oppression is an interactive program designed to illuminate the issues of oppression that have historically occurred and that still take place in today's society. Each group is led by their student tour guide through a series of active and passive scenarios in which they are exposed to various types of oppressive behaviors and experiences. Potential issues addressed include inequality, body image, disability, domestic violence, religion, and other diverse issues. For more information please contact Quantrell Willis, Assistant Dean of Inclusion and Student Engagement at qwillis@millikin.edu.


Senior Reception
Each semester we provide a senior reception for all those students that will be soon graduating. During this time multicultural student organizations and the Office of Inclusion and Student Engagement will share in the celebration of each student who will be taking the next step in their journey. For more information please contact Quantrell Willis, Assistant Dean of Inclusion and Student Engagement.
