Performance Learning makes all the difference at Millikin University.
Millikin University is an independent, four-year university in Decatur, Ill. with approximately 2,300 students in traditional and non-traditional undergraduate and Masters degree programs. The signature of a Millikin University education is a unique experience we like to call Performance Learning.
When James Millikin founded the university more than 110 years ago, he did so based upon the idea of combining theory and practice. While this was a radical idea at the time, today, we know that practice is not enough. Today's students must perform their knowledge in order to be truly prepared for life after college. Internships. Co-teaching. Student-run Businesses. Presentations. Market Research. You name it; our students are finding new ways to live out their learning and reap the rewards of their hard work. The result -- Millikin students graduate with experience and the confidence to succeed.
98% of 2011 graduates gained employment or entry to
graduate/professional school within six months of graduation.
