Vice President for Academic Affairs
Welcome to Millikin University where our Mission to “deliver on the promise of education” applies to students and faculty. Your education will combine theory with practice. The faculty will provide experiential opportunities for you to put the theory to work in the classroom, on campus, and in the community. You will be motivated to generate academic excellence, to achieve success, and to make a difference in our world. You will discover and pursue your full potential, personally and professionally, to do well and to do good.
The Millikin University Program of Student Learning is designed to integrate a solid liberal arts foundation with professional preparation so students emerge as strong critical thinkers, well prepared for success in our technologically advanced global society regardless of what major they choose.
We want you to get involved with the faculty in the acquisition, discovery, and application of knowledge. To get the most out of your Millikin experience you must be actively engaged in your own learning. Millikin provides the academic support and enhancement resources so that you can maximize the valuable benefits of being educated at one of the mid-west’s best small colleges.
We want you to explore cultures and ideas other than your own. You will become a partner in advancing international understanding for our faculty and students through academic programs, co-curricular activities, semester-long study abroad opportunities, and innovative, shorter, immersion programs.
Welcome again to the Millikin University website. We hope you will find what you are seeking at the website, and when you visit the campus. If you have questions, please feel free to contact the VPAA Office at 217-424-6220.
