The institution is committed to freedom of expression and the pursuit of truth in teaching and learning.
Robert B. Miller, the College’s namesake, was a newspaper editor and publisher. The College was founded on the journalistic principle of the pursuit of truth. The College has no political or religious foundation or bias. As stated in the mission statement, the College is committed to diversity, critical thinking, and communication. The faculty members are practitioner focused, believing that application of knowledge is critical for success in the workplace. Classes are small, providing an environment that facilitates group discussion. Students are encouraged to share their views and to evaluate the views of their classmates. For example, in BUSN 300: Accounting and Economics students are required to summarize economic journal articles and explain whether or not they agree with the author. The classroom discussion involves monetary policy, fiscal policy, and green energy, price of gas to consumers, unemployment, and supply and demand issues. Students are required to articulate their personal beliefs and support those beliefs with sound economic principles.
SCIE 330: Research Methods requires students to develop a proposal for an individual research project based on primary and secondary research. Students develop hypothesis and draw conclusions based on facts.
EDUC 310: Teaching Reading and Language Arts I and EDUC 311: Teaching Reading and Language Arts II provide a foundation for teachers to explore strategies for teaching a diversified student population in the area of reading and language arts. All classes encourage students to express themselves in the form of discussions and reflections. Numerous research projects throughout the educational programs encourage students in their pursuit of truth.
The Robert B. Miller College is committed to freedom of expression and the pursuit of truth in teaching and learning.
