Service Learning Essential to the Millikin Experience

At Millikin University, our mission is to deliver on the promise of education, and service learning is just one of the many ways we accomplish this goal. 

We prepare students for:

  • Professional success
  • Democratic citizenship in a global economy
  • Personal lives of meaning and value

At Millikin University, curricular and co-curricular service learning extends the learning environment beyond the campus and into the community. Participants actively engage in service, addressing both their learning goals as well as genuine community needs.

The service learning process involves reflecting and thinking critically about how the experiences connect to knowledge from course work, to emerging skills, and diverse values. Learning is intentional and formalized through goals and assessment mechanisms.
