Feature Story

Patrick E. White
President, Millikin University

Millikin University maintains its founder's traditions: combining disciplines and focusing on performance-ready education model

Decatur’s Millikin University is not your typical liberal arts institution. In fact, its academic tradition is a sort of hybrid in which founder James Millikin, a Pennsylvania-born businessman, cattleman and banker, wanted to bring together technical knowledge and skills with the humanities and sciences, theory with practice, and contemplation and reflection with active engagement in the world. When Millikin founded the university in 1901, he committed its future to what the university calls performance learning, education that is both grounded in doing, in practice and performance, and is made manifest to a larger public.
