In reviewing the progress the College has made since the last visit of the HLC in 2007, the Self-Study Steering Committee has designated a theme for this study: “Moving from Good to Great”. Miller College has many strengths for an institution that just opened its doors as recently as Summer/Fall of 2005. The College has grown tremendously in knowledge of what makes a great institution, far beyond the class size. The smaller faculty and staff size allows the College to actively involve the whole team in decision-making, on-going assessments of the progress being made, as well as the challenges that need to be addressed. The Self-Study has provided that opportunity to continue to search deeply inside of the institution to examine each core component of the College to identify the strengths and challenges identified in this document. One of Miller College’s goals is to achieve a level of excellence that can serve as a model for other small private institutions in the region. Miller College faculty, staff, and Board of Trustees have developed a Strategic Plan (revised Fall 2012) that is transparent in identifying attainable measures/strategies to accomplish the goals identified while following the mission of the College that declares:
The Robert B. Miller College mission is to graduate students who exhibit a high level of competence in their area of study and demonstrate service to the community. The College values student learning, critical thinking, oral and written communication skills, and an understanding of a globally-oriented world.
This is the outcome at which everything outlined in the Miller College Self-Study is aimed, and to which every member of the Miller College faculty and staff aspires.
