Our Mission

The School of Education supports the mission of Millikin University in preparing students for professional success, democratic citizenship in a global community, and a personal life of meaning and value.  The mission of the School of Education is to develop professional educators who:
  • engage in active learning,
  • create communities of learning,
  • facilitate learning for others, and
  • collaborate with others.

The mission of teacher education at Millikin:  To prepare beginning teachers whose knowledge, skills and dispositions promote a lifetime commitment to excellence in teaching and learning.


Journey Toward Excellence in Teaching & Learning We believe that, when we prepare teachers who are journeying toward excellence, they, as future teachers, will direct their own students toward excellence, thus continuing a cycle of learning and teaching. We believe that helping teacher education candidates uncover the value of excellence within themselves will enable them to effectively facilitate learning, collaborate with other professionals and create learning environments in which all students are actively engaged in learning.
