Letter from Your Dean

Welcome to Millikin University!

We hope you get engaged in our community. Millikin students are not spectators, they immerse themselves in all-things Millikin. Student Development has a variety of different opportunities for you! Engage in service learning opportunities, be a leader in a student organization, or attend one of our many programs. The Student Development department has seven offices that will provide you with the support and your home away from home!

Additionally, Student Development's strategic plan emphasizes student learning as the primary outcome of our work. It also stresses the importance of assessment and planning being conducted simultaneously.

We hope you have a wonderful four years with us and continue to partner with us as alumni or as a parent. Should you have any questions or need additional resources my office is located in Richards Treat University Center, Room 121.

Go Big Blue!
Raphaella Prange, MS
Dean of Student Development
