Welcome to Millikin University!

Where students prepare for professional success, democratic citizenship, and a personal life of meaning and value.


For more than 100 years, Millikin has served its students well. Employers and graduate schools continue to prize Millikin graduates. In fact, 96% of our 2014 Millikin graduates gained employment or entered graduate or professional school within six months of graduation.

I can say with confidence that this is truly a special place. Millikin will provide life-changing experiences for you. We have carefully crafted our website to place the information you need at your fingertips. Whether you are a future student or employee, alumni, or community friend, I invite you to visit our campus and to experience the Millikin Difference.

Best regards,

Dr. Patrick E. White
