wHY ARE WE DETERMINED TO #STOPTHEtAKEOVER?
As the country grapples with deep social division and crisis upon crisis, Mills College simply cannot disappear just as the leaders it develops are most needed—to break barriers, to launch initiatives, to share bold visions for inclusion, to do the hard work. Mills is a Historically Women’s College. It currently serves women, non-binary and trans students at the undergraduate level, and graduate students of all genders.
*** And Because We Haven’t Seen Any
Real Evidence That Mills Is In Financial Peril ***
Mills College is financially viable and does not need to close. Its reaccreditation, audit, and
public records prove this.
Additionally, we are fighting for the continuation of Mills as a college which centers those pushed to the margins in society:
Mills is a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) with 25%+ of undergrads identifying as Hispanic
17% of undergrads are resumers or non-traditional students
65% of undergrads identify as people of color
58% of grad students identify as people of color
44% of undergrads are first-gen
58% of undergrads identify as LGBTQ+
The current unrest in the world demonstrates the need for Mills College — a place where we engage across identity groups to build a post pandemic world that is better than our past and the loss of Mills College brings that mission of the socially equitable world further away. The world needs Mills right now.
