Robert B. Miller

When Robert B. Miller Sr. saw something in his community that needed doing, he addressed it with vigor.

Following his philosophy of community stewardship, the Board of the Miller Foundation, took notice when a survey revealed that the Battle Creek area lacked convenient access to bachelor’s degree programs. After months of further exploration and planning, Miller College was launched in summer of 2005, a local college specifically created to meet a community need for accessible higher education.

In concert with the Guido A. and Elizabeth H. Binda Foundation, the Miller Foundation has continued to support the development and expansion of the college’s offerings. The College welcomes students from Battle Creek as well as transfer students from colleges and universities in Jackson, Kalamazoo, Lansing, Detroit, Grand Rapids, and many other Michigan communities. Students from other parts of the nation and around the world are welcomed as well, drawn by our unique blend of student-centered education and practical, real-world learning.

As we’ve grown we’ve established cooperative relationships with other area colleges and universities to better serve our students’ diverse and growing needs. This willingness to “think outside the building” is one of the keys to our success as a college and it’s a trait we enthusiastically encourage in our students.
